With truth as the primary preoccupation of the narrative, the film introduces us to Meisha, a girl who had found herself in the way of her father’s science experiment as a child, that eventually reduced her existence to that of a strange being. Unable to digest food or continue a regular life in any form, she survives solely on the radiation of other devices. At the same time, this life of isolation is further tied with secrets from the past, along with her father’s sudden and unexpected death in an accident years ago.

As the viewer is taken deeper into Meisha’s life, and introduced to her sole friend and companion, Dhruv, a story of thrill and action develops. Though the film loses points in terms of its sound, and consequently, in the seamlessness of some of the performances, there is a dedicated endeavor of weaving an engaging story, and it would be interesting to see how it develops in subsequent parts of the film. Additionally, Snower Sania Vasudev as Meisha definitely remains an unmissable presence amidst it all.
