A folk tale set in the Thar Desert explores the inner struggles of a married woman to honour a dream and in that search find the higher meaning of love and freedom.

MUBI's take

Adapted from a folktale by Vijaydan Detha, Pushpendra Singh’s debut work Lajwanti is a breathtakingly filmed, elusive ode to romance. Following a married woman’s silent quest for love and freedom, this drama, set in the Thar desert, delicately probes the significance of women’s agency and desires.
