ln stories we can twist our dreams and reality to fulfil our desires. A story is a strange mixture of truth and invention,through which we see what we are, what we desire to be, What we eventually become.

Manik Mulla (played by Rajit Kapoor) mesmerizes his listeners with his thoughts about love being disciplined on economic restrictions. The direction is mind blowing . The way the stories are connected is just superb, every story portrays manik mulla as central character , how his life takes shapes as he comes across three girls at different stages of his life... In the end there are definite conclusions (with little socialist angle ) The language in the movie is so pure and serene , it inspires to learn Hindi vocab. I have seen this movie several times .. there is a nice song in it too..
A must see if you like art movie , I bet you will fall in love with the characters as you see them.
