Storyline

Author Shaukat Vashisht lives a wealthy life-style in India with his wife, Antara, who is a College Teacher. Shaukat achieves fame when he is nominated for the Booker prize, and goes on to win it. His publishers, hoping that they have unleashed a goldmine, are disappointed with his subsequent works, and soon Shaukat is depressed to such an extent that he almost gives up writing. Then he decides to write a story on a woman named Tamanna, and figures that he will base this story on none other than Antara herself. For this purpose he starts to make note of her every movement, and it is then that he finds out that she has an admirer in fellow-teacher, Yash, a dashing young man - with a bright future ahead of him. Shaukat also finds out that Antara has never mentioned Yash to him, nor has she informed Yash that she is married. Watch how his obsession with Tamanna blurs Shaukat's reality with fiction and hallucination - with hopes still high that he will make a come-back and be nominated ...

very different
19 November 2006 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

this movie was completely not what i expected. when i was watching it i had 2 remind myself that its bollywood. although the story line seems simple, a married girl meets a guy that falls in love with her, yet the way that the whole storyline was portrayed in the movie was very effective and most of all interesting. ashwarya with her amazing beauty is stunning in this movie! however the actor playing yash just didn't fit in. the whole story had a melodramatic twist, with great music and effects, and he just seemed 2 bollywood for the movie if u know what i mean. shabd had a slow pace to it, yet it wasn't boring, there was something very capturing about the movie. it was a reflective movie about love, however minus all the colourful dancing etc. very little of that! a movie definitely worth seeing.
