Directed by Siddharth Chauhan
Amar Colony is a desperate trip of the human condition in reality and fantasy. The film is set in a small hill town in the lower Himalayas in India.
Meera (20), a lonely pregnant woman is caught in a maze of desires and disappointments. Devki (45), a widow confined to a wheelchair demands respect for her pigeon. Durga (60), a religious fanatic begins to experience delusions.
When mundane lives of these three women intertwine in a lonely chawl in India, we encounter an existential underworld of raw impulses, desires and fears in this human wilderness with no respite and no resolution.
