Batmi, translated to English, means 'The News'. The film is about an incident that takes place in an Indian, middle class home, on a regular evening. It is a story that explores the incident in a single, continuous long take, as if being witness to it, as opposed to reading about it in a newspaper. It unfolds the complex dynamics of Society, A Home, Family Relationships, Friendships, Dreams, Time, Life, and Death. The film tries to give the viewer a first hand experience. Makarand, the father and Reema, the mother are in a relationship that is falling apart. Today they have broken into a fight because Makarand finds out that their son, Omkar, has failed in an exam. He blames Reema for letting Omkar take a 'break' without really understanding why he needed one. As their argument heats up, we explore the other spaces of the house, the family members, the apartment they live in, their neighbours and the effect of their fight.
