Kolkata: It is believed that water baptises the mind, the body and the spirit. It has the power to cure, care as well as effect transformations in human beings that stretches beyond the mortal understanding of man. Riingo’s forthcoming venture, produced by Flixbug, and titled A River In Heaven is one such film that delves into the age-old myth of water as a powerful agent of change and its repercussions on our lives.
Set in Varanasi, A River in Heaven has one single motif running through it — Ganga, which is worshipped, praised, loved and deified by millions of God-fearing devotees. Ganga is not merely a river — she is an oracle, a portal where wishes are heard, blessings are granted.
A River in Heaven unfolds as a story of human relationships — of love, trust, friendship, betrayal and final reconciliation. The incidents and events depicted here act as Ganga changing lives sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worst — but always for good.The story is based on characters as each of them faces obstacles and challenges in their lives, their fate and course of action determines who they become in the end. A River in Heaven is a story of karmic retribution — Namita, Hari, Banno and Tatoo are not saved from it. A River in Heaven is a story of karmic reward — Shaon, Bela and Bisakha find a way out of it. A River in Heaven is a story of relationships — of husbands and wives and parents and children. It is an abiding tale of forgiveness and ultimate realisations.
