On the map of Everywhere, in the middle of Nowhere, near a tiny rail head on the biggest loop of Indian Railways lies Daundaj, off the pilgrim route. Here in a small railway quarter, unfolds the story of Zuber. Or is it Tahera? Is it the Making of a film Diversion ahead that no one's seen? Whose story is it anyway? Who tells it and to whom?’ Who is the Hero? Or who is not? Is the whole, more than the sum of its parts?
Aisa Nahin Hua Tha Tahera/ Jumbled Cans was made as a diploma film for ftii, pune with a student team of filmmakers within a set of given parameters and resources in 2012. It was attempted as a workshop, experimenting with new ideas and forms, reflecting on the process of FilmMaking with most roles played by students.
