BHAIRU 29 mins | Marathi | India

MANASI DEODHAR

Synopsis:
Young Bhairu is deaf and mute, but his imagination knows

no bounds. He likes to imagine what aural sensation would
feel like, and quite enjoys the idea of it. But when his parents
get him a hearing machine, the reality of sound floods into his
head, clattering and clanging in chaos, clashing with his
imaginations. As Bhairu is caught between the discord of his
imagination and reality, he tries to figure out what works
better for him.
