SYNOPSIS

Amidst the daily din of the local trains in Calcutta, a lonely working woman in her late fifties finds herself falling in love with the voice of the railway announcer. Yours Truly is a story about seeking connection and discovering how love can strike at any age- and in the most unexpected places.

 

 As 57 year old government employee Mithi Kumar finds herself on the brink of retirement from her mundane office job, she realizes there’s just one thing she’ll miss about work- or rather her daily commute. It’s the voice of a stranger that she has been irresistibly drawn to; one she has felt a deep connection with amidst the everyday din of the railway station. That voice belongs to the station announcer- her invisible but constant companion as she goes to work every day. Ever since the first time she heard his voice, she felt something stir in her- and over the last decade it began to feel as if he was speaking directly to her, as she began conjuring up her own images of him- even writing letters to him, sharing her deepest emotions with this stranger. As her days at work come to a close, Mithi searches anxiously for her imagined soulmate. Will she ever find him- and more importantly, is he for real? Yours Truly is a story about seeking connection and discovering how love can strike at any age- and in the most unexpected places.

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

Yours Truly is a poignant parable of unconventional love between two emotions, who constantly create new templates to remain connected in a world fashioned to obeying clichés and stereotypes as defined by society.

How Mithi, no longer considered a suitable candidate to cultivate and express amorous feelings, shares her life with the idea of love – a potent which excites her.

At times light-hearted and funny, it counter analyses the love story and family paradigm from the perspective of the non-confirmative marginalized yearning souls, in the process inspiring countless others.
