Bricks and Lyrics

Bricks and LyricsWritten by : Abhijat Joshi

Directed by : Soham Mehta

Sanjay, a builder, sets out to acquire the house of Sandhya, a former freedom fighter and the widow of the poet Anaamik.  At first unyielding, Sandhya strikes a deal with Sanjay.   In exchange for the house, Sanjay must resurrect the memory of her deceased husband.  Sanjay’s search for the poet’s lost work uncovers much more than he expects.  A freedom fighter’s memory, a builder’s future, a poet’s final lines, and the history of a nation come together over one house…  Bricks and Lyrics.
