Dear Cinegoers,

Booklets always give you the Synopsis in the shortest form to enable you to understand the film better.

This time, we have decided not to give you the synopsis in words and instead we do something original in requesting you to enjoy it through the mediums of photography, music and acting.

Synopsis is not meant for you but for those who do not understand the story clearly. But we are sure that even those who do not have the synopsis, in advance, will have no difficulty in following HARMDARD.

This is not a story of Birds or Beasts. It is a story which might have been taken out of a leaf or your life. Its story is human, your favourites are acting in it. All the ingredients of a good entertainment, music, drama, good photography and direction and story are all there for you to see enjoy.

A hero and a heroine, a villain and a Vamp and a few comic sequences are there mainly for your entertainment.

Nothing more need be said about it except to ask you to see it for yourself.

Sincerely yours,


(From the official press booklet)
