Written by Meena Natarajan
Directed by Dipankar Mukherjee
With original music by Pooja Pavan, A. Pavan and Vijay Ramanathan
5 Weeks tells the stories of broken hearts, shattered images, longing and memories of home during the tumultuous time after borders were drawn to create India and Pakistan in 1947. Inspired by real life events, interviews and fiction, 5 Weeks weaves together multiple strands of stories of people of different faiths and cultures, bringing to life those forced to flee what they once called home, the pressures to choose allegiance, and the desperate search for compassion in a time when humanity hung in the balance.
Ensemble includes Joydeep Haldar, Kingshuk Mandal, Madhu Bangalore, Vidyotham Reddi, Bilal Dar, Sayli Khadilkar, Shree Sachdeva, Kuljeet Kaur, Khadija Siddiqui, Tasnuva Ahmmed, Kallie Melvin, Prakshi Malik, Kiran Manchanda, and Tarun Kumar, with original music by Pooja Pavan, A. Pavan and Vijay Ramanathan.
