Dasru (Manoj Bajpayee) and Vaano (Tannishtha Chatterjee) live a grimy-laborer life in Mumbai. They abruptly leave Mumbai and reach the remote tribal areas of Jharkhand, Eastern India, with their young daughter Joram.
Dasru and Vaano are working and sleeping at a construction site with their young daughter, Joram, clinging to their backs several years after fleeing the hamlet of their tribal community. The thriller flashback shows how technology and power dash the promos of big-city success.
After a dubious encounter with Phulo Karma (Smita Tambe), a political figure from their area, horrific violence results, forcing the soft-spoken Dasru to flee into Mumbai's dusk haze. Ratnakar (Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub), a stern and exhausted Mumbai cop, follows Dasru as he exhaustingly defends Joram while desperately traversing the city's underbelly.
Ratnakar soon realizes similarities between his life and the man he is pursuing. Devashish Makhija, the director, expertly manipulates cinematic convention as Dasru and Ratnakar's suspenseful journey back to Jharkhand combines a thriller with subtly evocative noir and western cliches.
The gulf between a displaced Dasru and the ruling elite has a vibration that goes beyond the scope of one man's survival tale and into the injustices experienced by those on the wrong side of racial, economic, and class divides.
Joram, featuring Manoj Bajpayee in the title role, unabashedly explores how poverty, corruption, and dispossession can desperately inspire reverberation.
