Based on a play by the same name, this musical drama is about a longstanding rivalry between two renowned Hindustani classical singers in competition for the status of  “royal singer”—a prestigious title that comes with a special dagger and a promise from the Maharaja of a pardon for a single murder. This contemporary piece of Marathi cinema features musical numbers from the original play as well as newly composed music, and stars Mumbai-based singer Shankar Mahadevan who performs with Zakir Hussain and Dave Holland as part of the Crosscurrents project at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts on October 28.

Directed by Subodh Bhave, 2015, 162 min.

Cinematheque Film Screenings: This film is part of Chan Centre Connects, and is one of three music-inspired films that have been curated to accompany Chan Centre Presents performances.
