Hellaro is an emotional Gujarati drama, set in the backdrop of the Rann of Kutch. It follows the lives of a group of Kutchi women who are bound by the patriarchal nature of the society they live in. There is no joy in their lives, suppressed as they are by the menfolk of their families. The only respite they get from the sheer drudgery of their lives is when they go out every morning to a distant water source to get their daily quota of water. It is here, far away from their suppressed existence, that they can be themselves for a few hours everyday. But one day, they meet a stranger in the barren desert of the Kutch. What follows thereafter changes their lives forever. Hellaro is a National Award winner for Best Film, and was hailed by critics and audiences alike for its vivid storytelling and evocative imagery.
