Set in modern Mumbai, this coming-of-age comedy-drama follows the lives of three young men–Akash, Sameer, and Sid–in their romantic (and sometimes not-so-romantic) adventures. The world of art permeates the film in a number of ways, including visits to exhibitions and operas, as well as a romance between Sid, a painter, and an older woman and art-lover. This “new wave” Bollywood film has a mix of traditional song-and-dance elements, as well as more contemporary musical numbers. In Hindi w/ English subtitles. 185 min. Part of the Ackland Film Forum’s “Art of Bollywood” film series.
