The Violin Player


Location: Redstone Theater

Presented in collaboration with Sunny Thakkar.

With Bauddhayan Mukherji in person.

India. Dir. Bauddhayan Mukherji. 2015, 72 mins. DCP. North American premiere. In Hindi with English subtitles. With Ritwick Chakraborty, Adil Hussain, Nayani Dixit, Sonam Stobgais. A chance encounter sets a musician on a surprising journey of self-discovery in this mesmerizing tale of art and destiny. Bengali actor Ritwick Chakraborty stars as a struggling Mumbai violinist who barely scrapes by working gigs as a Bollywood session player. But a fateful meeting with an enigmatic filmmaker (Adil Hussain) leads to an unexpected artistic collaboration that proves life changing. By turns funny and poignant, The Violin Player conjures a quietly gripping air of mystery as it builds towards its soul-shaking denouement.
