Synopsis

Inspired by the amazing work of 18th century India’s miniature painter Nainsukh and his biography, the story revolves around the master’s passions and devotions. After leaving his father’s workshop, Nainsukh becomes an official court artist of the Rajput Princes of Jasrota.

Our take

We begin our focus on Indian experimental filmmaker Amit Dutta with a film often regarded as a critical juncture in his artistic practice. An ingenious depiction of the art and life of the 18th century eponymous Pahari painter, this meditative work unfurls like a multi-layered miniature painting.
