Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
This UK-German drama has a completely Indian cast and setting. Successful classical Indian singer Pallavi (Kaushalya Gidwani) has been coached in the Hindi musical traditions by her mother, singer Kalruna Devi (Kapila Vatsyayan). When Kalruna dies, Pallavi suffers a trauma that results in the loss of her voice. In quick succession, she then loses her career, her students, and her husband (Bhaveen Gosain). On the brink of madness, Pallavi learns to sing again by imitating a voice channeled through a child. Shown at the 1997 Venice Film Festival, this film's English title is Dance of the Wind.
