YARI ROAD is a universal story that examines the fine line between friendship and competition amidst the rat race of the entertainment industry.
Shot on location in Mumbai, India.
Three friends, who all started their acting career working on the same film, are reunited for 24 hours. A lot has changed for each one of them since they had last met two years ago. One has gone onto have a successful film career, one has left the acting field and one has become extremely bitter about being a struggling actor. What starts out as a harmless reunion of friends, quickly turns into a battle of egos with irreparable consequences.
One of the things that makes this film unique is the creative process of the way it was shot. The three actors playing the characters did actually get their start working on the same film — Joseph Matthew’s “Bombay Summer”, and the location where the film was shot is the actual residence of two of the actors in Mumbai, India. All of the dialogue in the film is improvised.
