Rakshit Shetty has built his reputation over the years on the back of unconventional choices as an actor and filmmaker. Through his home production house of Paramvah Studios, Rakshit has helped many worthy stories be brought to life and one such is his latest venture, Mithya.

A fascinating film that features a child protagonist, Mithya has been directed by Sumanth Bhat and the first look of the film was launched earlier today via social media.

Large, greying skies in the background with a young boy, clad in a raincoat and bearing a somber look on his face, the first poster withholds an emotional and poignant tale of coming of age that is Mithya. Sharing a little about the film, Rakshit Shetty wrote in his tweet:

“How does a little heart process pain? Or does it even? Here’s an intense story full of emotional beats trying to trace answers to these questions. I was so moved when I first heard this achingly beautiful rendition,” suggesting that there is inherent grief as part of this journey.

Reportedly, Mithya follows the 11-year-old protagonist (Athish S Shetty) who, after having tragically lost both his parents, sets out to seek love and meaning in the outside world. He encounters both old and new friends along the way and the rest of the story is centered on this crucial journey he embarks on.

Sumanth Bhat is an engineer-turned-filmmaker who has been associated with Paramvah Studios for quite some time. Bhat has written and directed four episodes of the Ekam web series (a Paramvah creation) before taking on his debut feature project.

Mithya’s core crew includes Udit Khurana for cinematography, Midhun Mukundan (Garuda Gamana Vrishabha Vahana, Sakutumba Sametha) as the music composer, and Bhuvanesh Manivannan as the editor. The cast also includes popular Tulu and Kannada actor Prakash Thuminad (Ondu Motteya Kathe, Bell Bottom, Sa.Hi.Pra.Shaale, Kasaragodu) and Roopa Varkady.
