21st Tiffin – an IFFI 52 film with a protagonist without a name, for a reason which is as ordinary as it is extraordinary. Explaining the curious portrayal of the character, Director Vijaygiri Bava says: “It’s an intimate story on human emotion and relationships. We have tried to depict the lives of all women who have lost their identity, in the service of others. That’s the reason we have not given any name to the protagonist.” Bava was addressing a press conference in Goa today, on the sidelines of the 52nd International Film Festival of India, being held during November 20 – 28, 2021. The film is based on Gujarati writer Raam Mori’s Sahitya Akademi award-winning book. He was also present on the occasion.
From being a mother to a wife, from a daughter to a sister; women are an epitome of sacrifice and selflessness. How often do we pause and pay our heartfelt gratitude to them? The Director informs that he has come out with 21st Tiffin as a tribute to all those women who have lost their identity in the process of tireless service to keep others happy.
