‘The Catalyst’ is a story traversing moral dilemmas that create an incongruence between good and bad. It is inspired by a short story written by Kartar Singh Duggal, which was set in pre independent India. Though cinema has showcased films with the undercurrent of moral dilemma time and again, it is fascinating how the topic is still just as relevant today, as it was in the pre independence era. This film tackles the perennial and perturbing financial inadequacy that blights the people at the bottom of the pyramid. A man’s attempt to find a bit of black or white in this interminably greying society! In short, this is a tale that concerns all of us – it just depends which side we see it from.

Why are we making this film?

We are taking a road to self discovery through stories about the ‘otherwise unnoticed’ raw human emotions. We have vehemently kept ourselves from the glitz and the chaotic end of filmmaking not because we are not able to do it, but because human stories such as this need more listeners and we have promised ourselves to deliver.
