The Pool is the story of Venkatesh, a "room boy" working at a hotel in Panjim, Goa, who sees from his perch in a mango tree a luxuriant garden and shimmering pool hidden behind a wall. In making whatever efforts he can to better himself, Venkatesh offers his services to the wealthy owner of the home. Not content to simply dream about a different life, Venkatesh is inquisitive about the home's inhabitants-indeed about the world around him-and his curiosity changes the shape of his future.

Indian cinema legend Nana Patekar (SALAAM BOMBAY) and newcomers Venkatesh Chavan and Jhangir Badshah star in this film about a young man trying to make a living in the wealthy hills of Panjim, Goa in India. Daydreaming about one day getting an education, Venkatesh works as a "room boy" in a hotel and sells plastic bags on the side with his young friend, Jhangir, to make ends meet. When he becomes enchanted by a sublime residential pool, Vankatesh gets entangled with the mysterious family that inhabits the home. His relationship with the rich father and his cynical, sophisticated daughter disrupt his fixed ideas and unexpectedly alters his destiny.
THE POOL's extraordinary soundtrack was recorded at Mumbai's Krishna Audio studio and features some of Bollywood's most renowned veteran musicians, including Manohari Singh (woodwinds) and Bhupendra Singh (guitar).
