Chauranga (Four Colors)
Set in the dark hinterland of India, CHAURANGA is inspired by a real incident. Fourteen-year-old Santu wants to go to school like his older brother Bajarangi. Their mother works as a maid at the mansion of the upper-caste village headman with whom she is having a dangerous liaison. When Bajarangi returns from boarding school on holiday, he exposes Santu to the dreams of city life. But Santu’s destiny was pre-written in a village that’s steeped deep in caste-hierarchy and debauchery. Unaware of the consequences, he nurtures defiance and courts a few dangerous infatuations that could topple the equations of caste in the village. How far will his defiance take him? What will be the price of his escape?
