A follow up to Satyajit Ray’s classic Apu Trilogy, The Wanderlust of Apu (Avijatrik) brings back to the big screen, after sixty years, the enduring and endearing character of Apu. Now a warm and affectionate father to his dear son Kajol, Apu misses his late wife Aparna, and through his dreams finds himself constantly involved in philosophical discourses with his beloved.
Life has come full circle for Apu as he lives vicariously in moments through his son. Yearning for more adventure he finally bids farewell to his village, his city, his motherland and embarks on a spirited journey with Kajol through unchartered territories in search of new beginnings in a faraway land.
Screening as part of the Manchester Indian Film Festival.
