The movie is an audacious takeover by Kanade and as the trailer is absolutely alluring and seductively bold for an Indian film.
Inspired by a real-life event about the 'Purushottam' theatre competition in Pune, the film revolves around a young dramatist who rebels against his fascist tutor to form his own troupe of misfits, aiming to win a prestigious theatre competition and trying to find the hardest thing of all: his voice.
'CRD' is based in the world of college theatre; it probes fascism and fierce competition in the field of arts, with a wildly innovative style.
