Two Pronouns and a Verb is about the perennial question: Who am I? It’s also a triangle of love and anger, with two childhood friends Arjun, the doubter, and Dhruv, the believer, at two vertices, and Eva of variable love torn between the two. Dhruv wishes to bend the universe to his beliefs, Arjun wishes to interrogate himself till the universe is revealed within himself. Eva just needs their love to survive. Two Pronouns and a Verb draws parallels from ayurveda, the ancient Indian science of life. It’s the story of friends unspooling their destinies along separate paths, crisscrossing through memory, yearning and near-greatness, as each struggles to answer their first and last question.
