Angni Varsha- The Holy Fire

A period drama set in the pre-mahabarata era, 'Agni Varsha' is a contemporary melodrama which depicts the gruelling story of a village drought-striken.

To appease Indra, the Lord Of Rain, Paravasu is chosen by the villagers as the high priest to perform the 'holy fire', a rain-bringing ritual.

But this choice is strongly opposed by Paravasu's cousin Yavakri, whose jealousy and resentment proves to be rather dangerous for all concerned.

Already premiered at The Commonwealth Film Festival in Manchester in May 2002, 'Agni Varsha' received a standing ovation after its prestigious screening.
