Hello

Synopsis

Tungrus (pronounced: toongroos) is a short documentary that observes a week in the peculiar lives of a middle-class suburban Mumbai household. What was once a home like a million others in the city, turns topsy-turvy when the eccentric patriarch brings home a baby chick for his cats to play with, much to the exasperation of his family.

Tungrus (pronounced: toongroos) is a short documentary that observes a week in the life of a middle-class suburban Mumbai household. What was once a home like a million others in the city turns topsy-turvy when the patriarch brings home a baby chick for his cats to play with, much to the exasperation of his family. What follows is an alternatingly absurd, nerve-jangling and heart-warming set of accounts about the latest addition, from each member of the household.
