PROGRAM NOTE

The Violin Player is the story of a day in the life of a failed Bollywood session violinist whose life revolves around remarkable nothingness. Life, that day, throws a carrot at him and he ends up finding expression in an unlikely place. The day unfolds to reveal startling truths about music, art, life and survival. One day, one stranger, one request and one life-changing moment that makes everything else pale into insignificance.

Bauddhayan Mukherji

At the early age of 11, when Bauddhayan first picked Satyajit Ray’s, [Ekei Boley Shooting(All About Shooting)], he knew filmmaking was his calling. Today, he runs his own production house which he co-founded with his wife in 2007, called the Little Lamb Films and under this banner, 〈Teenkahon(Three Obsessions)〉, his first feature film was made. 〈Teenkahon〉 gathered much critical acclaim and has been screened in a number of film festivals.
