A documentary story told through images, poetry and the Dhrupad; a vocal genre in Hindustani classical music, said to be the oldest still in use in that musical tradition. Its name is derived from the words "dhruva" (fixed) and "pada" (words). The term may denote both the verse form of the poetry and the style in which it is sung. Its great to see documentary filmed in this style, letting the subject tell the story, in this case the subject is the lyrical mystic music.

Exquisitely filmed technically flawless sound and image matched by a dazzling array of authentic performance.

A film gem.
