If you stop striving for excellence, did you ever strive for excellence? A musician’s unadulterated devotion, a mirage-like quest for divinity, and the courage to fight your own mediocrity. The Disciple is the tale of an Indian classical vocalist, Sharad Nerulkar, searching for the traditional absolute in a contemporary city that never stops hustling. The Disciple is both written and directed by acclaimed Indian filmmaker Chaitanya Tamhane, his second feature film after making Court previously, and also the short film Six Strands. Produced by Vivek Gomber, and executive produced by Alfonso Cuarón. This originally premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year, and it also played at the Toronto, Zurich, New York, and London Film Fests. Netflix will release Tamhane's The Disciple streaming starting on April 30th this spring. Interested?
