In an age where, being oblivious to your true self has increasingly become a reality for many, such a path to self-discovery can lead to feelings of loneliness, confusion, fear and doubt. Artistically inclined villager Avdhut Kale struggles to find his place in the metropolis of Pune. Working as a reporter for the local newspaper, he is stuck with helping his colleague write the horoscope section or trying to meet the demands of his editor who wants to publish factual but sensational news. As the film progresses, Avdhut travels back home and is faced with the prospect of an arranged marriage. His work and the mounting societal pressures of what is expected of him is a disconnect from his true self. Moreover, his passivity towards life is made apparent through his discourses with friends and family, who voice their perspective of life. Divided into five chapters, the final chapter witnesses his journey to the countryside, where he seeks wisdom and spiritual insight. Trijya traces the journey of Avdhut, from his hometown in rural India and how he faces the reality of his own dreams and aspirations about life in a large Indian city. It takes us through the challenges of today's modern way of life and the compromises one inevitably makes along the way to find peace and a place we can call our own.

For someone like me, who is born to the family of folk artists and lives and breathes multiculturalism, migration to Pune resulted in a catastrophic cultural shock. For the past five to six years, I am carrying ramifications of that catastrophic blow in every ounce of my existence’- AkshayIndikar.
