Namdev Bhau in Search of Silence

Directed by Dar Gai

The mythical ‘Silent Valley’ is the destination for Namdev Bhau, a sixty-five year-old chauffeur who cannot cope with the noise of the city anymore. Ukrainian born Dar Gai’s second feature film adopts an episodic narrative that recalls the spirit of the road movie genre. Along the way a young boy Aaliq (Arya Dave) joins Namdev on his search for tranquillity. With magnificent cinematography and a wonderful supporting cast, this is a brilliant study of the want to escape the dread of urban life.
