     10A beautifully crafted and meditative 
     11documentary portrait shot on 16mm of the 80- 
     12year-old Madras-based Savithri Rajan, a 
     13virtuoso veena player who never performed in 
     14public. She was the disciple of the legendary 
     15musicians Tiger Varadachari and Veenai 
     16Dhanammal. The film is built around her music 
     17and family memories with K.K. Mahajan’s 
     18sensuous camera gliding through the spaces of 
     19her life or simply recording the aged but lively 
     20Rajan’s voice and music. Savithri Rajan’s 
     21extraordinary presence is the film’s focus, but 
     22Mathur manages to convey the complex 
     23interrelations between personal, familial, 
     24artistic and social rhythms of change, achieving 
     25the rare feat of doing justice to the 
     26accomplishments of the individual artist while 
     27at the same time suggesting how social 
     28elements constrained as well as nourished her 
     29life and her art.
