Storyline

Kerala-based George Nair is an efficiency expert who travels to Pune to provide a report on downsizing. He is met with the firm's Vice-President, Malathy Chandran, and must come up with a plan to let go a number of employees. Both spend time together and Malathy confides how she had exchanged matrimonial correspondence with another male from Kerala, while George describes his family, his Hindu mother and Christian father, and his elder brother who has been missing for two months. Neither are aware that George's brother, and the male that Malathy refers to, is one and the same. Will they find out his whereabouts? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A film about Young India

Manasarovar was shown at the Kolkata Film Festival, in November 2005. The hall was full to capacity. Throughout the screening you could feel that the audience fully identified with the characters in the film. There was a psychological symbiosis. Why? Modestly, yet effectively, Manasarovar tells a story of young India and of her quest for answers to questions regarding life and love. "What do you want to do with your life? and "How come you are not married?" ask both George and Ravi. "I don't know," replies Malathy.

Through a long interaction, Malathy and Ravi dispel the clouds in their minds and arrive at clarity of vision. Not yet, perhaps, the purity of mythical lake Manasarovar, but they journey towards it. The lake remains an unattainable goal: what matters is to keep running up the hill of life.
