A 2009 Bollywood film, Road To Sangam, will be screened on November 12.
It is a simple story of a God-fearing, devout Muslim mechanic named Hashmat Ullah who has been entrusted the job of repairing an old V8 ford engine, not knowing the historic significance that it once carried the ashes of Mahatma Gandhi immersed in the holy river Sangam.
He is caught in a complex situation after a powerful bomb explosion rocks his town leading to the arrest of innocent Muslim youths of his locality.
When a strike to work is called by the prominent leaders of his community to protest the unjust treatment meted out to arrested youths by the police, he is caught in a dilemma between supporting the protest and abandoning the repair of the engine or going against the wishes of his community.
Thus begins a journey of Gandhian values, principles and patriotism.
The movie will be screened at La Fontaine Centre for Contemporary Art and Spa, starting at 8 pm and the ticket value can be used in the restaurant on the same night.
Dinner begins at 7 pm.
