Based on the original story by AK Srikanth, YUDH - Three Perspectives One Truth is a stunning masterpiece that brings Bharathanatyam on stage in a new avatar! 

Directed and Choreographed by internationally renowned danseuse Savitha Sastry, the central theme of YUDH is inspired by age old philosophical questions: Why are we as a human race constantly put to the test? Is the mind a play on our emotions or are our emotions a play on the mind? How do we decipher right from wrong?
