Private Project


Holi arrives just after the religious turmoil and on the backdrop of curfew. Sachin and Karim, both in 4th standard, want to play holi. Opposition from family members gives rise to various questions like 'who are we? What exactly is the difference between two of us?' They start questioning their existence. With their will to play holi together, they bring all their friends out of their homes. This struggle itself leads them to answers of questions they were asking about their existence.
