Must you kill in order to live…? One Sunday morning, a no typical customer walks into a small time barber shop in East Delhi, demanding a shave. Having faced the ordeal of 1984 anti-Sikh reprisal, Manjeet Singh Sandhu, a devout Sikh-turned-barber mulls over and faces an epiphany of sorts, upon coming face to face with his bête noire. Contextualized in the socio-religious political events of 1984-87 India (in the aftermath of Operation Bluestar and Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s assassination), Rab da Vaasta (For God’s Sake) – Every Drop Matters, is a screen adaptation of Hernando Téllez’s well-known story – Espuma y nada más (Just Lather, That’s All).

Directed by: Chakravarty Devulapalli (Age: 29+)
