Dvija is a short film is based on a short story titled ‘The Shrine’ by AK Srikanth, and is inspired by and dedicated to Uera Akinari, the author of the Japanese epic ‘Harusame Monogatari’ (1809). Dvija
Savitha and Srikanth have touched on philosophy before – be it the cycle of life and death in their debut production Soul Cages (2012), or in the life of a mystic in their production The Prophet (2013). Dvijahowever takes a huge leap forward from their earlier productions, be it the ambition, the scope, or the philosophy of the project. The film was shot in the hills of the Nilgiris, with a village being created as a set amidst the mountains for an authentic experience. The project stands testimony to the couple’s faith in their creation – having taken three years from conception to realization.
