PVR Director's Rare to release Chaurahen on 16 March

MUMBAI: PVR Director‘s Rare, the recently launched alternative programming initiative of PVR Cinemas, will release Rajshree Ojha’s Chaurahen (Crossroads) on 16 March.

Chaurahen is an evocative and poignant film consisting of three separate stories set in three different cities in contemporary India. The vignettes present snippets of everyday life. There is a troubled adulterous affair in Kolkata, a family dealing loss of a son in Kochi and a young man in Mumbai dealing with memories of his ancestral home.

The crossroads at which their lives are at render heartfelt situations between characters that create empathy. The film is presented in English language with Rajshree Ojha‘s inimitable, stark visual story telling style.

Chaurahen is a well-woven film based on three different stories. It also boasts of an ensemble cast consisting of very talented actors."
