Director Statement

Post an adventurous trip to Nepal, I was stuck to the bed for 4 months due to a shoulder dislocation surgery. With nothing much to do sprouted the idea of Pain. While going through the painful physio post surgery, the sessions that I absolutely abhorred, made me realise how important it is to feel pain, to feel alive.

The forest here symbolises a restless mind. The mind that scares us with the unknown and stops us from pushing our own boundaries to achieve the greatness. The forest is not letting the protagonist escape but in return has given him a gift that he can’t feel any pain. The protagonist goes on a quest to stretch the limits of this gift and releases that this is not a gift but in-fact a curse.
