Anumati is the story of an old man’s attempts to save his dying wife. For all practical reasons the doctors have given, but Ratnakar is desperate to hold on to the world his wife Madhu has woven. He is not ready to sign the DNR form that permits the doctors to remove external life support to the patient.
In the face of absolute money shortage, Ratnakar tries everything - borrowing from relatives, appealing to charity trusts and coaxing insurance companies. He tries to raise money trying to sell the very house that he had built with his wife. His trauma of facing life without his life partner is unbearable…He is still hopeful that their proposed trip to America will actually become a reality when his wife recovers.
Anumati is the consent that Ratnakar refuses to give to let his wife die. He finds himself in a corner, helplessly trapped between emotions and practicality, being forced against his wishes, to give up on his longlasting partnership – a dilemma that only fate can solve.
