Storyline

Set in the beautiful Kullu valley of Himachal Pradesh, Saanjh follows the journey of Sanju, a 16-year-old city girl who becomes the victim of bogus social-media posts. When her father discovers a compromising online video in which Sanju supposedly features, he consigns her to their remote ancestral village to stay with her grandmother. Isolated and dejected, Sanju encounters ill-mannered house guest Jonga and finds surprising solace in his company. Unable to adjust to the village lifestyle, she hatches a plan to escape the village with help of Jonga, but need time to raise enough cash. Meanwhile, Sanju slowly begins to understand her grandmother's pain-living a secluded life with almost no contact with her children-and a deep bond grows between them. When the grandmother falls sick, the film focuses on one unforgettable Saanjh (evening) in which they are caught between light and darkness. Written by Director

A perfect first movie.....
22 November 2017 | by vinayeragonSee all my reviews

Saanjh is the first Himachali movie. This is how first movie is suppose to be. A realistic, genuine, emotional and we'll root based movie. And great performances by all the actors especially Asif Basra and Tarnjeet Kaur. Watch this compelling drama and I am sure you'll get mesmerized. The background of the movie is utterly enticing. At last the music of the movie also keeps the rhythm of the movie. Great work Ajay Saklani and keep it on.
