Nakshatra is a romantic thriller that deals with the complexities of life. It is a story that portrays different shades of colors that paint a bond of love between two completely different people. It is a story about a dreamer, whose dream is mislead by destiny, as it charges ahead to prove itself. It is a story about a dreamer who then chases, the law of love, truth, justice and destiny.
According to Hindu mythology, Moon had married all the 27 daughters of king Dakshan, who are the star constellations (27 Nakshatras) in the sky. But he loved to spend time with only his beloved queen Rohini. Other wives complained the matter to their father. Inspite of king Dakshan`s repeated interference, Moon did not rectify his habit. Dakshan finally lost his mind and cursed moon, causing it to wane in size. Moon started diminishing in size, and feeling the ill consequences of it, all the gods intervened and requested the king to revoke the curse. King then assured that only if Moon visits all his wives, he would regain his strength for half a month, constantly waxing and waning in size. That is the reason why Moon visits the entire 27 constellations and spend approximately one day in each constellation… each constellation is divided equally @ 13.20 this is how we arrived at the figure… 27_13.20. However, any connection to mythology, astrology ends here … this film is an action thriller.
The Plot :
When an opportunity to write a script for a movie comes to Ajay, an aspiring script writer, he is thrilled, more by the thought of finally being able to prove himself to Jiya, the girl he loves, than the knowledge that this could very well be the beginning of a bright future in the world of celluloid.
Ajay works hard at getting the script right. Jiya is elated when Ajay’s script is accepted and they get engaged. Things take a turn for the worse when Ajay is arrested for a crime he didn’t commit. Sharad, his friend who had helped him several times in the past, promises to bail him out as soon as possible. Jiya, who has been helping Ajay clear his name, makes a surprising discovery. The fact that she now knows the identity of the killer and the mastermind behind the plot does little to ease her mind.

“NAKSHATRA” I love the title of the movie..
This film has been a starting road for many, so everyone has put in that extra effort into it. Blood, sweat, tears have gone into making of this film. We shot in over 40 locations,on the streets of Mumbai, jungles, posh Marinas and deserted islands. It was difficult but unique and fulfilling journey.
In my cast, firstly a sincere thanks to Anupamji, for adding his experience and being a part of this film, Milind Soman is an extraordinary talent and easy to work with. He lights up the screen every time he is on it. The freshness and raw talent of my lead pair Shubh and Sabina has added the exuberance of youth to the film. In rest of the cast, we have a mix of experienced seniors and new comers all playing their part brilliantly.
For my director and friend Mohan Savalkar; well, what he has done is there for you to see. Though this is his debut film, but not for a single frame can you say so..
I am fortunate to have a very dedicated team, who has given their best to make Nakshatra a technically sound and creatively brilliant product. I am sure with this film R-Vision will make its mark in the industry.
