Movie Info

If the parts of a ship are replaced,bit-by-bit, is it still the same ship? An unusual photographer grapples with the loss of her intuitive brilliance as an aftermath of a clinical procedure; an erudite monk confronting an ethical dilemma with a long held ideology, has to choose between principle and death; and a young stockbroker, following the trail of a stolen kidney, learns how intricate morality could be. Following the separate strands of their philosophical journeys, and their eventual convergence, this film explores questions of identity, justice, beauty, meaning and death.

Critic Reviews for Ship Of Theseus

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

  • Ship of Theseus undoubtedly marks the arrival of an important talent in Indian cinema.

    Jan 9, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It's an ambitious outing for a first-time feature and, despite some unadventurous editing and an occasionally too-talky script, young playwright-turned-filmmaker Anand Gandhi should be commended for his commitment to intellectual truth-seeking.

  • An intellectual, contemplative film, although its occasional tendency to take its abstract ideas on the nature of self-identity and wrap them into neat plot twists can mildly disappoint.

  • Indie Indian cinema has finally come of age on the international fest scene, and no film better demonstrates this than "Ship of Theseus."

  • A film that will make you think, maybe even make you angry, but I can almost guarantee that it will at least make you feel, and that's why I go to the movies.

  • Ship of Theseus asks its audience to ruminate as much as its characters.
