Satish Menon's


Satish Menon's "Bhavum" captures the struggle of consciousness of a young urban couple upon the arrival of the wife’s mysterious sister.
Their struggle, seeking to reconcile their desires with various realities and truths, results in the gradual deterioration of their relationship.
Their evolving relationship plays out as a metaphor for a society that is growing apart intellectually and emotionally in an environment where the effects of globalization – mainly manifesting in avid consumerism - and the influence of media as a tool for proliferating propaganda have taken root.
This irreconcilable wedge precipitates in the gradual disintegration of relationships inevitably resulting in degradation and chaos.
