Story


About Rimi

Rimi is a short drama fiction that tells the story of women that lie at the heart of most Indian households - the housewives. At the core of this story lies the invisible emotional and physical struggle of every housewife.

Our protagonist, Rimi, is one such housewife caught in the roles of a mother and wife, caged in the mundanity of everyday life. She finds herself at crossroads when on a rainy day, life takes a turn. Will she take the chance and break free or will she abide?

Why do we want to make Rimi?

The idea of the film Rimi came very naturally. It’s something we’ve seen our mothers do their entire lives. We’ve seen them prioritise their family more than their own self. We’ve seen them give up their dreams because there was a child and house to look after. We’ve seen the, compromising and sacrificing in things big and small and we’ve seen everyone expecting them to do just that. It’s not just our mothers. We all know women like these. We’ve met them, lived with them and maybe, taken them for granted.

With this film, we want to show housewives for what they truly are - women with dreams and desires. We want to show that before being mothers or wives, these women are independent individuals who if it wasn’t for the structure of our society, might be living their lives differently, in their own ways.  Housewives in both films and real life often go unnoticed. Most films in the past have depicted them as loving mothers or sacrificing wives or other times as superheroes saving the day. But we want to change this. And it’s important that we do.
