“Roshamon Blues (A)” is set in present day Mumbai. Rashomon Blues is an adaptation of Akira Kurosawa`s 1950 classic. The storyline is pretty complex with many characters adding in their two bits but that's what is supposed to make it more interesting. Essentially, the deal is this: the bandit Tajomaru accosts a samurai and his wife on a lonely stretch; the swordsman is killed and then begins the whodunit.
