Indian music is rich and diverse. Music is a way of our life. The film ‘Naadam’ presents a vibrant glimpse into the beauty and diversity of Indian music, said director Indrajit Nattoji at 17th Mumbai International Film Festival today.

Addressing the #MIFFDialogue, Indrajit said “Every sound we hear is a musical note. Music is nothing but a series of notes. My daughter was seven years of old and she used to wake up at night hearing some sound. I took this idea and created a story.”

He said, uniqueness of the film is its format. “Unlike TV and normal cinema, Naadam has been shot in 1:6 frame. You can’t cover the whole screen at one go. So therefore the film was shot in a way where the sound guides you where to look at. It was a tremendously challenging project”, he added.
