In their college days Amit (Bachchan) and Pooja (Raakhee) are in love, but Amit decides that they must give up their love to respect their parents' wishes. The resulting narrative vortex brings all the characters together in a bubbling cauldron of suppressed personal histories. The full arsenal of the melodramatic repertoire is unleashed, tapping domains repressed by social convention, releasing sexuality as almost random energy, even resorting to a hysterical staging of the last minute rescue. Douglas Sirk would have approved.

Curator Ravi Vasudevan is present
