From the director of award winning queer films 'The Pink Mirror (Gulabi Aaina)' and 'Yours Emotionally!' comes another hard hitting drama about marginalized people.
Subverting the Bollywood film genre of song-dance and high drama, the film places characters ignored by Bollywood centerstage - a transsexual bar dancer, a prostitute, a gay couple - to tell their stories of pain and trauma, of happiness and hope, about being HIV+ and alienated.
The film lays bare the ground realities in India, the society's apathy and cruelty towards HIV and AIDS in a honest and sensitive manner.
We are all so caught up in our careers, relationships and life in general that we have forgotten to pause and look at the person next to us. Everyone is so distant nowadays, one's own shadow seems a stranger. This film is made with a purpose of bringing some of the stories that we have not cared to stop by and look, into focus. It is not a bugle call for action, but a gentle reminder to pause, reflect and make an effort to understand. Maybe we can all wipe a tear, hold a hand... or maybe write the next 68 Pages.
