Trivia

The lowest, slowest or the weakest in a group or society determines the speed or progress of the whole. The title of the movie, a metaphor as the movie itself, draws this analogy with the seventh horse pulling the chariot of the sun. See more »

Story teller at his best!
15 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

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.
