‘The Path of Zarathustra’: A reflective path breaking film
The Parsis have always been an intriguing lot universally and director Oorvazi Irani’s “The Path of Zarathustra” is a well-meaning mystical docudrama that gives a brief insight into the community’s faith, religion and their lost identity.
The first frame of this film is very unique. It begins with a reflection of the water in a well which creates ripples. And what follows will surely create waves. Slow, philosophical, weighty and contemplative, this is a reflective film.
Wrapped with personal issues that include romance, the film is the story of Oorvazi. It is her quest in understanding and deciphering her religion.
