      Soul of this movie touches the dense pool of deep secrets of Indian wisdom beyond rites and rituals and with lot of myths and magical realism. Elina winds up her search saying
      "Emma my twin soul
      She flew high with pride
      With sparkling independence
      Unfolding her graceful,
      Mantle of silken wings
      Where all seems so bright and right
      Without detachment from the source"
      Unlike any other spiritual movie, Aathmika does not touch rites and rituals of any religious beliefs. The movie is taken to the next deeper plane where every spiritual perception meets.
      Visually and Culturally you journey through the history of Mexico /Peru to a busy city of Europe ,Amsterdam which is rooted in the art, architecture and music to the vibrant Indian culture, often labeled as an amalgamation of several cultures with lots of myths and mystic interlaced.

      The approach and treatment is a unique, non-linear narration and the center stage of the act is not viewed through the directors eyes perhaps its observed through the characters of this movie and these views break the journey and moves to and fro with interesting turns and twist leaving a signature in your soul
