Having consumed his entire adult life in trying to unravel the mysteries of time-travel, an ailing Professor Bakshi, aided by his foster daughter Veena, makes a desperate final attempt to prove his theories by organizing a party for time travellers… to be held in the past.
Made on a budget of less than USD 100, Kaalchakra was shot entirely on an iPhone 6 without the use of any professional gear by a small crew of 5.
Rohit Pareek, a 24 year old actor played the role of the aged Professor Bakshi in the film. His makeup was done by his co-actor Deeya Dey who essays the character of Veena in the film.
The film has won 8 International Awards till date including 2 Best Film Awards, One Best Director Award, 2 Best Actors Award and a Best Screenplay Award at various Film Festivals worldwide.
