Mirch2010

Mirch (2010) is a 2010 Indian drama film written and directed by Vinay Shukla. The film featured Konkona Sen Sharma and Raima Sen in pivotal roles. The film began filming in Bikaner, Rajasthan.

According to Shukla, the subject of the film is gender equality and woman sexuality.The film revolves around four short stories subjected on issues of women emancipation, based on a story from the Panchatantra which travels in its various versions to modern times. Konkona Sen Sharma and Raima Sen star in two of these short stories. The film premiered at the I View Film Festival on September 26, 2010. The film will have a theatrical release on December 10, 2010.

Plot

Maanav is a struggling filmmaker who is unwilling to compromise on the script he has written. His girlfriend Ruchi, a successful film editor, arranges for him to meet Nitin, a film producer. Nitin likes the script, but is not very sure of its commercial prospects. Maanav then suggests a story from the Panchtantra: A woman is caught red-handed with her lover by her husband and yet, she manages to wriggle out of it scot-free!

Nitin loves the story, but finds it too short for a feature film. Maanav then creates three more stories based on the same premise: in a way, the Panchantra story travels in different versions to the modern times through the film. The four stories are woven together by a common story. Mirch itself echoes this structure, with four stories mingling with the main narrative.

The message is simple – if you have your wits about you, you can salvage even the most impossible situation.

At a deeper level, Mirch is about the gender equality in relationship; and at a still deeper level, it is about how an artist finds creative freedom in today’s mercantile world?
