About Film

"Amaltash (A Month and A Week)" is a visually-rich journey of two soul mates who find each other through music. Inspired by real-life events it’s a reminder of the value of friends, family and love. In the chaos of modern day life, we find peace and tranquillity in the eyes of Rahul and Keerthi as they live their month and a week of eternity.

The music is the centrepiece. The essence of this love story. The perfect partner to the visuals. It defines Rahul, Keerthi and their Love.

The camera captures modern life as we experience it. Sunsets from atop a hill. Star gazing from the terrace, resting in the lap of that loved one. Endless looks into each other’s eyes. Its ever present. A lullaby, a jamming session, a rock concert, a call out to that loved one. "Amaltash (A Month and a Week)" is a simple love story. The realities of life itself represent the shades between good and bad, the wide spectrum of emotions, that makes this a love story unique and yet so familiar.

Amaltash gently strolls through the lives of the characters involved in an emotionally sensitive situation. It is a soulful rendition of the melody of life.
