Sudden industrialization, big scale mining activities in central-eastern India affects the socio-economic fabric of a society that depends on agriculture. A young man and a young woman cross each other's path accidentally, each searching for his/her identity. Their journey starts on the ever expanding ROAD. The ROAD however seems to be the ROAD of lies and betrayal. Both characters seek freedom. Is it escape from REALITY ? Or is it only a DREAM ? Hello Arsi delves into these themes and tries to conjure a new meaning through the inner reflections of the two nameless travellers.
Director Sambit Mohanty
Cast Prakruti Misra, Partha Ray, Priyambada Ray
