A new independently made Indian film called Ship of Theseus has been getting attention on the festival circuit.
It is the opposite of a slick Bollywood picture, with no song or dance, and focuses on a philosophical exploration of the plight of three individuals in Mumbai.

Talking Movies is broadcast on BBC World News on Saturday at 13:30 GMT and Sunday at 00:30, 07:30 and 20:30 GMT.
