Kalokhachya Parambya is a story of a teen-aged orphan, Alif, who’s dealing with inner conflicts between wrong and right, dark and bright, and, passion and affright. How he handles them in the end has an inviolable message to an individualistic society which is largely caught-up in fulfilling the mutually exclusive desires at present.
The script is unique and stands out due to its simplicity and hard-hitting impact. A detailed-oriented approach has been followed to preserve its rawness—right from the selection of locations to that of cast and crew. The association of Makarand Anaspure with Kalokhachya Parambya speaks volumes about the true fabric of the story.
More than merely a film; it’s chiefly been a project to express the unexpressed side of an artist; and service of an artist to the society.
The producers believe that film festival is an effective medium to provide the amplified exposure to such artistic landscapes as they help leverage the networking to its best possible extent.
