About the film

In Marathi 'Hora' means fortune teller. It’s a folk theater form used to tell fortunes. Vilas Ghogre, a revolutionary poet metamorphosed the form to predict the political future of the world. Adapting that form in the film’s narrative technique, we follow the life of Rupali Jadhav who is an activist singer in Kabir Kala Manch, a cultural-political troupe using songs as means of protest and revolt. Her political and personal life has almost no difference. As a working class Dalit woman she liberated herself and is in the process of breaking the barriers of gender, caste and class. We were welcomed to their programme on the occasion of Ambedkar Jayanti and the film ends when spectators go back after the programme.
