#Rebellion: ‘M Cream’ a mountainous success

A motley crew of university students set out on a journey in pursuit of a mythical form of hash, confronting a series of encounters that begin to unravel the myriad realities of rebellion.

India –  

M Cream” is an experimental narrative that explores the myriad realities of rebellion indicative of India today.
It follows the exploits of a group of university students as they travel through the Himalayas in pursuit of a mythic form of hash. Through this journey, the film serves to portray a new generation in India and reflects upon the growing disillusionment of the same. Narrated in a style that is both familiar and poetic, “M Cream” unequivocally protests against the rising tide of conformity. While chalking out the contemporary socio-political realities of India, the film presents topics of concern that transcend regional boundaries. In a world of growing nationalistic fervour, it seeks to reaffirm the universality of struggle.
