Amar and Mansi meet through their respective families and have an arranged marriage. Amar, a book-keeper, is very thrifty, intends to save money so that they can buy their very own flat, and both to live as frugally as possible. Mansi soon gives birth to a baby boy, Bablu. Then Sapna joins Amar's firm and is asked to sit in this room, as her youth and beauty has led to distraction in the workplace. Amar reluctantly agrees to share his room with her, and is soon drawn toward her and they often go out together after work. Sapna would like to marry Amar, and asks him to tell his wife, so that the couple can separate. Amar does so, and Mansi agrees to separate on the condition that he introduces Sapna to her, and Amar agrees to do so. Watch how a pensive Mansi goes through the rest of the day - which may well culminate in her losing out to a much younger and attractive woman - a day that may change her life forever.

A movie that moves with the speed of life
18 February 2002 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

It takes something to make such a movie... great direction, I would say. There are periods of silence, there are talks and the talks actually take the time they would have taken in real life. The story is simple. A simple family of three, middleclass, the wife saving money to get a house of their own, and this saving is at times on the cost of little pleasures and conveniences in life. In the meantime the husband finds another girl who comes as a perfect soulmate. They start sharing a close relationship, a closeness that one ever achieves in reality, a closeness where both share the same emotional, psychological and philosophical grounds. And then comes the obvious... a dilemma for the husband, distance between him and his wife growing and an unclear status for the other female. And then he decides to tell his wife and leave her...

A must see for all the people who believe relationships go beyond spending time together. Its a real slow movie, and rather than focussing on what happens, the idea is to involve oneself in feeling the moments that make a relationship grow.
