Pahada- A short movie


PAHADA from Niranjan Kumar Kujur on Vimeo.

Munnu an 8 year old boy, is struggling to learn the table of thirteen for quite a long time. But obviously, his marbles and his toy cart end up charming him more than the need to sit with a book and study. In the tribal heartland of Jharkhand, the government has waged a war against Maoists. The village environment has just begun to alter with the arrival of Paramilitary forces in the area. How does the family cope with such violently changing times? Will Munnu ever become responsible?
