"It is 1974 and friends aniket, Nazrul and Lopa, all very gifted North Indian classical singers trained at the Marris School of Music in Lucknow, have no inkling that in a couple of decades, they'll be going through bittersweet reunion in Ithaca, New York of all places.

Aniket and his friends, leading a relatively contented, musical life, come of age at the Sursagar School of Music in Calcutta when a music conference precipitates a series of dramatic events, which transform their lives in ways none of them could have anticipated.

Much like the peaks and troughs of a 'khayal' or composition, ""THE WHISPERED RAGA"" tells its story in four parts: beginning with the 'alaap', which sets into motion their journey, the 'majh' follows, setting the stage for the impending drama. This triggers a series of flashbacks in Aniket's mind just like the 'asthayi' that lays the foundation of a 'khayal'. As the various crises come to head at a second music conference, the stage is set for the final crescendo or 'tarana'."
