By Ishwar Creations with 6.5

drama · Short Films · kannada

Arjun has recently returned to his hometown for a short while from the city. On his first day itself, he is surprised by his father with a new vehicle, along with love being showered on him by his mother. This treatment of his father towards him is in direct contrast with that meted out to his brother, Karna.

At the same time, there are elements of horror, thrill, and a suggestion of the supernatural, that are attempted to be weaved within the story. Jodu Marga, a small stretch of a street, is infamous for road accidents in the darkness of the night.

The story develops, and Arjun finds himself suspecting everyone's involvement in the foul play behind this haunting which has plagued the small town for years. As the truth is revealed, the narrative mentions mental health, alcoholism, the isolation and loneliness of depression, familial dynamics and the adverse consequences of them all on someone’s life. It is in putting together these aspects that the film presents its intentions to you.
