Sidharth Srinivasan’s “Pairon Talle” to release on October 5 under PVR Director’s Rare

By NewsDesk • Published on September 7, 2012

Pairon Talle (Soul of Sand) directed by Sidharth Srinivasan is scheduled for a theatrical release on October 5th under the ‘PVR Director’s Rare’ label.

The film was funded by the Hubert Bal’s Fund, from the Rotterdam International Film Festival, in the digital production category in 2008. In 2011, it screened in the Bright Future program at the International Film Festival Rotterdam.

The film was also screened at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2010.

Pairon Talle is the story of a downtrodden, lower-caste watchman who stands obsessive guard over an abandoned silica mine. The watchman’s existence revolves around his lord and master – the mine owner. He re-lives the same day of his life, his entire adult working life, while his neglected wife tries to make ends meet in questionable fashion, despite her love for him. One day, the watchman is forced to go against his unbending personal sense of duty to his feudal employer, and he unwittingly sets into motion a relentless chain of events. But by the time he realizes the consequences of his actions, it may just be too late.
