Namdev Bhau, a 65 year old chauffeur, who is tired of the noises in the obstreperous Mumbai City life and has completely stopped speaking, decides to leave everything in search for 'Silent Valley' which boasts of a naturally occurring phenomena having almost a zero decibel sound level. On this journey he chances upon an exasperating 12-year old boy, who happens to be on his own solo expedition to the mystical "Red Castle".
"Namdev Bhau : in search of silence" is something unique, a visually spellbinding narrative so powerful and exquisite. Its a deep and phenomenal film. Like most of us are in search of something that we are in need Namdev is in search of silence. Being a 65 year old chauffeur in the chaotic city of Mumbai he is exposed to noise on duty. Back home there is his nagging wife always complaining on how little they have. All this leading to frustration compels Namdev to google on top five silent places and exploring them. As he embarks on his journey to find the place of utmost silence he is joined by a twelve year old boy Aaliq who is in search of an equally important place named Red Castle which is adjacent to the Silent valley. The narrative is warm, pleasant and has a sensible quotient of humor and emotions. The humor is very subtle and really laughable and some sequences moistens your eyes. Its a film devoid of the usual twists, turns, comical relief. Its experimental and realistic and pure visual storytelling. Daria Gaikalova (Dar Gai) the director, the captain deserves an applause. Born and bought up in Ukraine and working in a theater group, Dar has been in India as a faculty teaching creative writing and film appreciation at 'Whistling Woods International'. The film premiered in Busan International Film Festival this October.
