In a poignant move, actor Vikram Chatterjee unveiled the teaser for his upcoming film, “Pariah,” shedding light on the often-overlooked plight of stray dogs in society. The 80-second video, shared on social media, offers a glimpse into a narrative that promises to be both powerful and thought-provoking.
Accompanied by the caption, “The history of the deprived has always been written with blood,” Vikram Chatterjee introduces viewers to the world of “Pariah.” The teaser introduces us to a nameless, ostracized man who takes a stand against the cruelty faced by dogs in human society. Known as pariahs, these Indian native dogs endure a life without a home, shelter, or identity.
The heart-wrenching narrative unfolds as the protagonist passionately declares, “As much blood as they shed, as much blood as they have inflicted on them, they will be killed.” This powerful statement sets the tone for a film that aims to be a voice for the voiceless, advocating for the rights and well-being of these neglected creatures.
Directed by Tathagata Mukherjee, “Pariah” tells the story of a socially displaced man and his journey toward becoming a refuge for stray dogs, who, like him, are nameless and clan-less in society. The film highlights the struggles these innocent animals face and serves as a call to action against the injustice they endure.
Tathagata Mukherjee, the director of “Pariah,” expressed his motivation behind the film: “While participating in various social activities, I have seen the amount of torture and pain animals go through. My film ‘Pariah’ is a story of protest against injustice to these street animals.” This sentiment underscores the film’s mission to bring awareness to the often-overlooked cruelty faced by stray dogs and inspire positive change.
