MUMBAI: Shemaroo Entertainment will shortly release Samsara, the winner of 30 international awards, on DVD.

Samsara has grossed above Rs 4 billion the world over. It has already seen DVD release in over 60 countries.

Directed by Pan Nalin, Samsara stars Christy Chung, Neelesha BaVora, Tenzin Tashi and Shawn Ku.

"Samsara is a passionate love story with shades of spirituality... within our worldly existence; it‘s about the awakening of sexuality, desires, love and liberation," said Nalin.

Samsara, set in the majestic landscape of Ladakh, is the first feature film to be entirely shot at an altitude of 15,000 feet. The film was officially selected at the Sundance Film Festival and has seen a world premiere at Toronto International Film Festival.

The story revolves around a Buddhist monk Tashi, who emerges from three years of solitary meditation to find himself experiencing a profound sexual awakening and a strong attraction to a beautiful woman Pema.

This unexpected awakening of his human desires leads him to question the spiritual values of his monastic existence, and he decides to opt out of the monastery for the secular world.

Tashi then goes through the entire Samsara cycle which leaves him confused, wherein he struggles to cope with the complexities of this world. "What is more important, to satisfy one thousand desires or to conquer just one?" - this quetion looms large through the film.
