Viruddh is a story of a person who accidentally witnesses a criminal act and loses his life in his attempt to intervene. Viruddh is story standing up against a well established paradigm of power in defense of his/her convictions. It is about dissent, fear of fear and of extraordinary courage and tenacity under extreme pressure and adversity.
Viruddh is also about an ordinary sixty plus couple who are forced to search for their faith in human values and society after the death of their only son. In this process they undergo the most testing struggle of their life. The ingredients of Viruddh and its theme are universally identifiable.
Set in the networked and global milieu, it tells a tale that has classical elements and structure and can be relocated in almost any context. The film expresses individual and social vulnerability in the face of a corrupt system and how his equation continues to be the same even as the ways of the society change.
