Namak (Salt) - Rajasthani Feature Film : Coming Soon

In contrast to a largely corporate-oriented film industry that dominates the mainstream popular culture in today's world, crowd-funding looks like a feasible, acceptable and more willful option in modern cinema. Also, it allows the audience a chance to have a choice in grounds of what he/she actually desires to watch in a certain philosophical orientation. That being said, 'Namak' also has a highly intriguing plot. 
The everyday lives of the economically downtrodden turned criminals, the role of female lives in such situations and the true image of extremely rural India reflects in the demure and melancholic sky that surfaces up in the scanty, saline waters of Rajasthan. 

Got a thought or two about independent filmmaking or the collectivised resistance accumulated in the Cannes Film Festival in '58? If you're not in connection with the French New Wave or other contemporary genres and movements associated with filmmaking but are interested in the content of Indian parallel cinema, this film might be of interest to you!

About the Film

Namak is an independent Rajasthani feature film. It is the story set in the fictitious place Kharpur. A small village of Rajasthan where salt is produced in saline water lake in abundant quantity. Therefore, salt and alcohol smuggling is at the peak due to the friendship of salt traders and liquor contractors. So, Kharpur is also famous for its hostility.

Bhairu is a smuggler. He loves Durga. Both want to get married, but Durga does not want to stay in kharpur after marriage. There is such a perception about village that there is salinity in the air and water, so the salinity of the outside is accumulated within the people, which never ends. Bhairu convinces her and they get married.

After the marriage, two incidents happen in and outside the house. Both plots are meet at one point in climax and proves the perception about kharpur village as true. Film ends with a note - We all are salty from inside.

The film is completely shot in a Jodhpur, Sambhar Lake Town and Nawa City of Rajasthan. The cast and crew comprises talented theater artists of Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
