Aaliya, a celebrated blind photographer, regains her sight following an operation – and begins to lose faith in her art. Maitreya, a critically ill monk must decide between his principles and death in the face of a life-threatening sickness. And finally Navin, a young stockbroker, gains scruples after a kidney transplant operation – and decides to explore the origins of his new organ. Anand Gandhi tells in three episodes of the cause, effect and morality of human action. If all the individual parts of a ship are replaced, piece for piece, is it still the same ship? This multi award-winning key work of New Indian Cinema is as intelligent as it is entertaining.
