Reading Time: 1minute
Featuring Neena Gupta, the film traces the story of a nine-year-old flower seller and tightrope walker Chhoti who befriends Noor, a 70 year old widow living a colorless life of abstinence. Chhoti promises hope to Noor as this poignant story of love, friendship, commitment and victory of the human spirit unfolds on the banks of River Ganges. Noor encourages the brave little girl to face life by “flying high” with courage, education, and dignity. She shares her fondest, but closely kept childhood memories of playing with colors. Chhoti promises Noor that, this Holi, she will finally splash Noor with her favorite pink color.
Twenty-four years later, Chhoti becomes an advocate and fights for the societal reforms that will bring about the rehabilitation of both street children and widows. The Last Color is a story of promises kept and promises broken, a friendship that knows no bounds, and the freedom and victory of the human spirit.
