Crime No : 89

Synopsis In one way or other, each and every one of our actions and thoughts are deeply ‘ethical’. Our notions about the world and others, and beliefs about what is right and wrong, anxieties about survival and resistance, all come into play consciously or unconsciously in our words, thoughts and deeds. This film weaves together an array of characters representing divergent worldviews, though they all apparently belong to the ‘same’ region and to a ‘common’ milieu. The events in the film unfold in an ordinary village, where people and things are moving at their usual, routine, everyday pace. One fine day Into this idyllic settings, enter two people in a jeep carrying some goods; obviously in a hurry to reach their destination. But their vehicle develops some hitch and comes to a sudden stop in the middle of a sprawling plantation. They want to get out of this place at eny cost. But things do not unfold according to their plans. The rest of the events that unfold is an intense trial of wits and temper, where the ethical core of each character crosses swords… Participation in Film Festivals 01 Hong Kong International Film Festival 2015, Hong Kong. 02 All Lights International Film Festival 2015, Kochi. 03 Artists’ Cinema / 100 Day Film Festival at Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2014 04 Hanoi International Film Festival 2014, Vietnam. 05 Colombo International Film Festival 2014 06 Habitat Film Festival , New Delhi 2014 07 Malabar Movie Festival 2014 (Inaugural film) Koyilandy, Kozhikode. 08 International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK 2013), Thiruvanathapuram.
