White Noise Synopsis
Leading TV director-producer and documentary filmmaker Vinta Nanda is known for her concerns with social issues. She embarks on her first feature in English, the subject, one she knows well, the heady, cut-throat world of production houses involved in the relentless process of churning out soaps that bring in the lolly. The film zeroes in on Karan (Rahul Bose), newly arrived in Mumbai, who joins Mickey Malhotras' studio 'Lighthouse', as a film editor. Just prior to that, he has had a chance encounter with a colleague Gauri (Ko?l Purie) whose good looks, personality and inner complexities fascinate him. Gauri takes refuge in work and drink, as she is hurting from the abrupt end to a long relationship with her former boss, Pawan (Aryan Vaid), who is married and playing the field. Head honcho Malhotra (Jatin Siyal) has hired her considerable scripting talent hoping that she will resurrect one of his fading on-going television series. Karan reaches out to the pained Gauri. White Noise, set in suburban Mumbai, is a modern comment on love, marriage, family and Mumbai itself- the city of dreams, where expression and talent are often replaced by ego and judgment.
