In blending the mythic with the modern, ‘Gandhari’ presents a deep dive into the legacy of the Mahabharata’s formidable, melancholy matriarch.

Choosing to blindfold herself in solidarity with her husband- the blind King Dhritirasthra -Gandhari makes a decision that, in time, will cost her everything.

Along the way, we are introduced to the lives of three contemporary women, now struggling with motherhood, womanhood, and the ways in which they too, have chosen to metaphorically blind themselves. Each scene, whether poetic or modern, offers a direct parallel to some part of Gandhari’s story, in an attempt to ask, what is the relevance of this mother’s tragedy today?
