THE PLAYBACK SINGER tells the story of an aimless, would-be, jungle-gym architect who finds his existence disrupted – and his marriage upended – when his prickly, Indian, B-movie playback singer father-in-law comes to visit and overstays his welcome.
An original feature written by director Suju Vijayan, THE PLAYBACK SINGER is an award-winning, family drama liberally spiked with comedy, which gets to the heart of relationships and the challenges of finding our place in this world.
