Tawaif in India is synonymous with Geisha in Japan.
Tawaif in India is synonymous with Geisha in Japan. And yet there is so little respect or understanding among the masses. This movie raises the bar and creates an opportunity for understanding.
Art, money, power, humanity and criminal behaviour come together in this movie world of a Tawaif. The reality is a bit more harsh.
This movie is about two women; and a man. The novel that one woman writes and the man (Rishi Kapoor) helps publish becomes the story of his life. Married to one, loving the other - what will become of him?
As things go in art or in life, one wonders whether art is a reflection of life, or whether life is art.
These were the questions Rati Agnihotri asks of herself, and finds an answer.
I hope you do. I am still looking.
