Director: Santosh Sivan
Malli is a tribal girl whose playground is a forest filled with the promise of adventure. There, she hopes to find a magical blue stone that will cure her best friend's muteness. But the forest is also a surreal and sometimes frightening world where poachers pose a threat to local wildlife. The story sympathetically delves into Malli's inner life and her deeply profound connection to the world around her.
Director Santosh Sivan (The Terrorist) has deftly created an entertaining film that appeals to all ages and doubles as a lucid and lyrical plea for environmental preservation.
