Bas Ek Pal: About real relationships

September 15, 2006 11:38 IST

Bollywood has been experimenting with the portrayal of human relationships lately. Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. Ahista Ahista.

Sadly, it has more often dealt with relationships melodramatically, without actually going into their depth.

What keeps our lives going are delicate strings of relationships. When these strings are in place, the journey of life seems smooth.

But the day tides of mistrust, anger and insecurity hit relationships, the course of life tends to change dramatically too.

Director Onir brings back Nikhil Kapoor (who was the hero of My Brother... Nikhil) to drive home this point in his latest offering -- Bas Ek Pal.

Set in Mumbai, the movie explores the subtle strands in the lives of five people. The protagonists, each of whom has different character traits, traverse into each others' lives and leave behind an indomitable mark.
