Kalidas' personality is as colourful as his canvases. In the film he reminisces about his childhood and his student days. Also comes into play are the more serious aspects of marriage and the time spent away from home. Kalidas feels that a painter's lived experience forms the basis of his artistic sensibilities. The ensuing dialogue on Kalidas' work reveals how colour and form extend beyond the confines of the canvas to give meaning to the artist's desire to connect to the primordial.
