Seeking to throw light on the life of Jesus Christ, a film-maker has made a documentary tracing the messiah’s fabled travel to India where, some say, he breathed his last.

“My film is not fiction. This is a docu-feature based on extensive research spanning several countries in Asia and also in the West,” Subhrajit Mitra, maker of Unknown Stories of the Messiah due for release this season, has said. The film develops through narratives of an archaeologist and a writer, played by Soumitra Chattopadhyay and Aparna Sen.

“The archaeologist is actually a sutradhar a joiner who puts together tales, folklore and fables under a common thread. The writer, on the other hand, symbolises a probing mind which embarks upon a journey to a world generally unknown.” “Both may belong to any time and space, but taken together, they act as catalysts in taking the readers on the route followed by Christ to India,” he said.
