Sharad Nerulkar has devoted his life to becoming an Indian classical music vocalist. He has studied under the tutelage of the greatest masters, and he practices relentlessly, day after day. But as the years go by, Sharad begins to wonder whether he is truly cut out for greatness. 

The Disciple is a slow-burning, meditative film that explores the themes of artistic obsession, sacrifice, and the nature of genius. Director Chaitanya Tamhane takes a deep dive into the world of Indian classical music, capturing its beauty and complexity, as well as its demanding and unforgiving nature. 

Through Sharad’s journey, we witness the single-minded dedication and discipline required to achieve mastery in any field. But we also see the toll that such dedication can take on one’s personal life, and the challenges of balancing artistic ambition with the realities of the world. 

The Disciple is a powerful and thought-provoking film that will resonate with anyone who has ever pursued a dream with all their heart.
