Mudita

Muditā (Pāli and Sanskrit: मुदिता) means joy;  Mudita is a pure joy unadulterated by self-interest. When we can be happy of the joy others feel, it is called Mudita.

Mudita is the title of Actor/Director Swaroop Kanchi’s latest Indian English film produced by Prakash Chhabria in association with Tapas Films.

Panduranga Ramalingam is a struggling saxophonist trying to fit into a world he doesn’t quite understand. Panda’s got his music, his gay best friend, who thinks America will solve all his problems and Panda’s got weed in his life. He befriends an older stand up comedienne KGB or Katyayini Ganapati Bhat who brings some humor and meaning into his life.

Hell bent on getting him married his mother tries to set up an arranged marriage for him with an equally awkward but seemingly abrasive girl Subbalakshmi with whom he feels an immediate connection. After many years away, Sarah, his ex Fiance returns to Bangalore with her two kids to get away from her abusive husband. ‘The chief ruiner of my life’ as Panda calls her cant help but think of giving their relationship a second chance.

He’s looking for love, he’s looking for a true beacon of hope for his otherwise hopeless and loveless life destined for the mundane. Here he is confronted by various aspects of the life he left behind, including his overbearing mother. Together with all the complex relationships in his life, Panda learns to heal his old wounds and forges new friendships.

 

The film is currently in Post Production and will be ready for an International theatrical release in 2018.
