The Song Of Scorpions
The sumptuous photography and stunning scenery ravishes the senses, in ‘The Song Of Scorpions’, a poignant Hindi tale of love, betrayal and revenge. Nooran (Golshifteh Farahani) is a young Rajasthani woman, who has a magical ability to heal scorpion bites by singing. Aadem is a handsome camel trader, plying his wares in the Thar desert. He falls hopelessly in love with Nooran, whose beloved grandmother Zubaida (Waheeda Rehman) disappears, leaving Nooran with little choice but marriage. But all is not what it seems, and Nooran is soon the victim of a traumatic betrayal, at Aadem’s hands. Love, heartbreak and redemption swirl throughout this enchanting, powerful tale that marks another success for director Anup Singh.
