Movie Preview - 'Mirch' : A cheating wife caught red handed with her lover by her husband! What will she do? Does she bring her subtle manipulations to bear to prove her innocence, or does she confess her guilt?
Maanav (Arunoday Singh) is a struggling filmmaker who is unwilling to compromise on the script he has written. His girlfriend Ruchi (Shahana Goswami), a successful film editor, arranges for him to meet Nitin (Sushant Singh), a film producer. Nitin likes the script, but is not very sure of its commercial prospects. Maanav then suggests a story from the Panchtantra: A woman is caught red-handed with her lover by her husband and yet, she manages to wriggle out of it scot-free!
Nitin loves the story, but finds it too short for a feature film. Maanav then creates three more stories based on the same premise: in a way, the Panchtantra story travels in different versions to the modern times through the film. The four stories are woven together by a common story. Mirch itself echoes this structure, with four stories mingling with the main narrative.
The message is simple - if you have your wits about you, you can salvage even the most impossible situation.
At a deeper level, Mirch is about the gender equality in relationship; and at a still deeper level, it is about how an artist finds creative freedom in today's mercantile world?
The film is slated to release on December 17.
