nrit -the dream of finding the self… 

Origin of the word NRIT {নৃত্, नृत्}: it is a Sanskrit (संस्कृत्) root word meaning dance; Sanskrit is touted to be the mother of all languages. Here ‘nrit’ symbolizes dance in its most elemental form, omnipresent in the crude creativity of life itself. ​​​

Square1Synopsis: A parable about discovering our true potential and experiencing life as a magical gift, ‘nrit’ is the story of an ordinary girl who is called to live out an extraordinary dream.

Plot: When tragedy strikes and takes away the most precious thing from her life, young Rani embarks upon a journey of self-exploration, into the mazes and meanderings of her mind as she is given a glimpse of the afterlife, alternate realities and parallel universes in a cosmic dance to consciousness, the kind of dance life is made of…!
