Man-woman relationship is of great profundity. It has defied the logic of philosophy, wisdom of spirituality and the inquisitiveness of psychoanalysis with all its subtlety and complexity which are beyond time and space. The mystery of the relationship caught the imagination of great philosophers and writers since the time of Sophocles, Aeschylus, Shakespeare, Kalidasa and has continued to mesmerize their forerunners living in the present times.
‘Vimukti’ is an attempt to explore the enigmatic man-woman relationship from a completely different perspective. The film is the latest offering from Navyachitra Creations which has given acclaimed movies like ‘Munnudi’, ‘Athiti’ and ‘Beru’.
Madhavi’s married life does not find fruition as it is undermined by her cluttered psyche. She is overcome by jealousy and raises a storm when Nava, a foreign girl, comes to learn traditional paintings under Keshavarao.
With her actions revealing her unnatural psyche, the family life collapses and her husband Vibhin finds himself in a quandary. Madhavi even fails to see her daughter Rachana’s childhood cravings. The painful realization forces Keshavarao to find a way out of the family labyrinth.
A few years later, Madhavi discovers that her father is in distant Kashi and goes searching for him. The eerie life of Kashi, the mysterious happenings, and the people longing for death in Mukthibhavan with the belief of attaining salvation, create a sense of disenchantment in her. She slowly begins to comprehend the incomprehensible.
National award-winning director P. Sheshadri has conceived the story of ‘Vimukti’ and has directed. S. Ramachandra is the cinematographer and Kemparaj has done editing. Pravin Godkindi has rendered the music. The cast includes Ramakrishna, Bhavana, Aravind, Hoda (Iranian actress) Venkatarao and others.
