There’s A Moment Between Letting Go & Attaining Closure, This Has Three Of Them! It might speak against your thought process, but it'll do it in a way that you'll have to listen to it.

Star Cast: Abhishek Banerjee, Rajeev Pandey, Jay Uppadhyaay, Chirag Vohra, ‘TJ Bhanu’ Parvati Murty, Rinku Rajguru, Delzad Hiwale, Kunal Kapoor, Zoya Hussain, Nikhil Diwedi, Palomi

The first of three stories explore the transformational phase of a lonely-to-his-soul person Pradeep (Abhishek Banerjee), a clothing shop salesman, in a bustling city like Mumbai.

He’s no more alone because he finds a companion, who literally won’t say a word even if Pradeep leaves his pee in the toilet unattended (sorry, for a shitty example).

Why? You ask so? Because his partner is a mannequin. How this story will unpeel itself? Director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari makes love look believable on-screen, no matter if it’s with a human or just a thing.

Second, comes in Sairat’s Rinku Rajguru playing the role of Manjari in a vintage Bombay (back then) set in the 1980s.

Amid the soothing chaos of stamping tickets, clinking cola bottles with metal openers & ‘sabki pasand’ washing powder’s advertisement

we get our hero Nandu (Delzad Hiwale) working at a canteen of the city’s famous single screen theatre

All said and done there’s always a moment between letting go and attaining closure this has three of them. It might speak against your thought process, but it’ll do it in a way that you’ll have to listen to it.
