By Sayandeep Bandyopadhyay

Music has the power to change our life; this is the theme of Bauddhayan Mukherji’s second movie “The Violin Player”. After getting mixed reviews from viewers and critics for his debut film “Teenkahon” (The Three Obsessions), he collaborates with Ritwik Chakraborty and Adil Hussain for his Hindi feature film, and he doesn’t disappoint.

The film revolves around the life of a struggling violinist, played by Ritwik Chakraborty, who is enduring a tough time finding jobs in the music industry in Mumbai. So, he spends most of his time at his house reading newspapers and killing cockroaches, while his wife leaves for work. Even in the sessions where he gets to play at, he looks fatigued and disinterested among the other musicians, lost in the sea of struggling violinists. One such day, while returning home, a mysterious man, played by Adil Hussain, approaches him to play violin for him.
