Dhuusar

A Film by Soumi Saha
and Snehashish Mondal

Synopsis

GREY.
Dhuusar follows Shila through three distinct phases of his life over a course of love, hate and everything in between. The film begins at a juvenile home where we find Shila. We explore Shila’s time in jail simultaneously with his childhood which revolves around his oppressive mother. As the mother son relationship gets tumultuous, the closer he feels to the jailer which eventually takes a toxic turn. The film progresses to his life after jail with his lover. He now has a job and a life which he seems to finally feel content with. However, this too starts to fall apart despite his attempts to save it. The film explores Shila’s obsession to escape from these situations in his life and the only way he chooses to do so, is by ending the situation itself.
