Raja Hindustani by Arvind Sinha

For several months each year, hundreds of wayside performers called ‘Nats’ make the chaotic and colourful metropolis of Calcutta their temporary home. The Film takes a macro and micro view of the community in the backdrop of a totally insensitive ‘mainstream’ India, unwilling to provide any physical space to marginals such as these.
