A biopic ‘Lasya Kavya’ on the life of Bharatanatyam dancer Alarmel Valli traces her contribution to the art form. As Bombay Jayashree, one of our finest Carnatic musicians sums up, Valli is a musician, poet, painter, dancer, all rolled into one. There is poetry and music in her dance. As Valli herself puts it, her body sings to the syllabic rhythm of the dance alphabet.
