The narrative wove around the structure of the Gwalior Gharana of Hindustani Classical Music, its inception, past and subsequent spread. The film highlights the guru-shishya parampara and its legacy right from eminent music maestros like Miyan Tansen and Nathan Pir Baksh to present practitioners and their voice culture and innovations in maintaining the individuality of an artiste as well as the gharana. The queries about the unique features of Gwalior gharana, their constant battle to survive and validate the traditional gharana are answered into this two hour long visual yard woven with the traditional music of Khayal, Thumri and Bandish.
