SYNOPSIS
Durga, a north Indian migrant and a Keralite youth named Kabeer are running away on a midnight. They are waiting for transport to the nearest railway station to catch a train to a distant place. Two small time gangsters, transporting arms, offer assistance to the couple. The hapless "Durga" encounters a cross section of the society through the rest of the night. Parallel to the journey of Durga another mysterious event intercuts in the film. In a Kerala village, devotees perform 'Garudan Thookkam', a ritual art form submitted as a reward for the problems solved in the abode of Goddess Kali, who represents Goddess Durga's personified wrath & embodied fury.

Its the middle of the night. A Hindi-speaking woman, clutching a bag, waits for a man. She looks at her phone, her face anxious. The man arrives on a bike. The driver, a friend, tells him, Dont waste time. Please leave. He drives away, and the man and woman begin to flag down vehicles for a lift. Couldnt the friend have hung around for a while and helped? Did no one in their circle own a car, or couldnt they have rented one? And what about these two? Are they lovers, eloping? Are they friends? Is he helping her flee from, say, an abusive relationship? What are the circumstances that prevented them from leaving earlier, in daylight? If they are headed to the railway station, why dont they seem to know the train timings? Was taking a bus not an option? At what point will we get some background that sets up what S Durga is about? ...Read full review
Shakespeare said, A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, and he is right. What is in a name really?
