Film details


Bhuvan Shome is a lonely, proud old man, a widower who decides to take a day off his routine life and mingles with local village folk. He takes part simple activities like riding in a bullock cart and duck shooting. This only deepens his sense of loneliness and he suddenly realises that there is no escape from the world that he has, over the years, built for himself.
