Beautifully photographed, sensationally scored...this is one mighty fine film.

Vishal Srivastava knows how to direct...showing more than he tells. And, when he does tell...he uses a killer line...the reaction shot is just perfect.

Wajood (Selfhood) revolves around a young hijra's (trans-woman) life, who seems to fancy herself with an auto-rickshaw driver. When confronted by the elders of her community about her unrealistic expectations goes on a subconscious quest to know if somebody will ever fall in love with her or is this thought as naive as told by everyone around her?
