Ship Of Theseus Is Inspired By Theseus Paradox And Is Here To Unsettle You

Ship of Theseus

Ship of Theseus is more like an examination rather than an entertaining flick. That’s where it puts forth a crucial question in front of an Indian audience: are we being an audience willing to accept such films?

Inspired by the Theseus Paradox, which is introduced at the start of the film, it follows multi-narrative storytelling. 

Story Of Ship Of Theseus

  • The film recounts three stories. The main plot is about a youthful lady who takes up photography after losing her sight due to cornea (disease). She gets a transplant and recaptures her vision. Rather than improving as a photographic artist, having the option to see overpowers her. She’s unable to see the goals of her life.

  • The second story is about a priest who battles animal cruelty done by the pharmaceutical practitioner. The priest discovers that he has liver cirrhosis. Here’s when he faces a situation: whether to take the medication produced by such drug organizations against whom he’s battling for basic entitlements? There is an important prayer that he reports, which was written in Prakrit especially for the film.

Ship of Theseus does the complete opposite, and audiences cannot leave their brains at home while watching this film. The sole purpose is to question the very reality we all live in, thus making it a must-watch for all creative artists alike. It is an intelligent movie with nuanced screenwriting and great acting.
