    • Synopsis
    • After her mother’s suicide, Helen goes to Varanasi to deliver a letter to her mother’s twin sister Agatha, who runs a missionary for low caste orphan children. When Helen and Agatha meet, it’s the first time Agatha’s seen her after 25 years.

      Helen learns of a serial killing spree that’s claimed the lives of four low caste girls, all burnt to death in and around city of fires. The killer seeks to claim the lives of seven girls to free himself and his loved one from the cycle of life and death and attain moksha.

      Arjun Das, a CBI officer from New Delhi is sent to Varanasi to find the killer. For Arjun it’s a return to his home and a city he left behind.

      As the Hindu festival of fire and colour ‘Holi’ approaches the killer prepares to claim the greatest sacrifice and seeks deliverance.

      Feast of Varanasi is a taut thriller, which matches a sense of place and narrative to deliver an original and beauty film unlike any other made in India.
