A 16-year-old girl living in a metro city is forcefully taken to a remote village in Himalayas where she finds her lonely grandmother as a companion to share their solitude.


Set in the beautiful Kullu valley of Himachal Pradesh, Saanjh follows the journey of Sanju, a 16-year-old city girl who becomes the victim of bogus social-media posts. When her father discovers a compromising online video in which Sanju supposedly features, he consigns her to their remote ancestral village to stay with her grandmother. Isolated and dejected, Sanju encounters ill-mannered house guest Jonga and finds surprising solace in his company. Unable to adjust to the village lifestyle, she hatches a plan to escape the village with help of Jonga, but need time to raise enough cash. Meanwhile, Sanju slowly begins to understand her grandmother’s pain—living a secluded life with almost no contact with her children—and a deep bond grows between them. When the grandmother falls sick, the film focuses on one unforgettable Saanjh (evening) in which they are caught between light and darkness.



Saanjh film is shot in Fortis Hospital, Mohali, Punjab and in various places of Himachal Pradesh. Most of the part of the film is shot at Shangarh Village in Sainj Valley which comes under The Great Himalayan National Park area in district Kullu of Himachal Pradesh. A few shots are from Lahul & Spiti and Mandi districts. Saanjh is the most beautiful creation presenting the beauty of Himachal Pradesh the best way.
