A damaged painting is like a body without a soul, Aunty Prima tells Valsa, when they set about restoring an old painting by Ravi Varma. As they remove the layers of dust, Valsa hears a delicate cough. Does it come from the painting? The Veena Player is about a charming friendship between young Valsa and the veena player, which weaves in nuances of Ravi Varma's art style, and pays tribute to his skill in painting lifelike portraits
