‘Prassthanam’ is a word that means journey. This is a story about power, greed, love, human fallacies. Set in a contemporary political family, the story of Prassthanam like the Mahabharat, deals with complex questions on morality, right and wrong. No character in the film is black or white, each of them is a human shade of grey. ‘Old Sins Have Long Shadows’. Shakespearean in its treatment, Prassthanam tells the story of Baldev Pratap Singh – a great political leader, but vulnerable to his ambition – and the story of his two sons, step-son Ayush and biological son Vivaan. One who wishes to be a candle and illuminate, while the other, like a raging wildfire, wishes to destruct. The story is an emotionally charged intense character drama in which every character is chasing their own desire, giving rise to complex and destructive situations. The lust for power leads to a complicated web of relationships, where blood, love, dharma and loyalties clash. As relationships are torn apart and blood fights blood, each one is left to figure their own path, their own journey.
