Calcutta, Nov 28, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) From the beginning of time, till date, women have loved to play and got away. MIRCH is a collage of four adulterous stories, all with one conclusion - women are smarter than men, even if you catch them red-handed !
A Reliance Big Pictures Bollywood film release, MIRCH (Hindi, 2010) is directed by Vinay Shukla with music by Monti Sharma. Mirch has a release date of Dec 10, 2010 and stars Konkona Sen Sharma, Raima Sen, Boman Irani, Shreyas Talpade, Rajpal Yadav, Shahana Goswami, Arunoday Singh and more.
Beautful dusky Bollywood actress Sahana Goswami, an accomplished Odissi dancer, has recently played a well-acclaimed award-winning role in the Hindi film Rock On! (2008). She also appeared in Jashn (2009), Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd (2007), Yun Hota To Kya Hota (2006) etc. Shahana Goswami will also appear in the upcoming Navdeep Singh's flick Basra (2010) with Chitrangada Singh and Abhay Deol.
Actress and film-maker Nandita Das is well known for her parallel / independent art-house movies, including Fire, Earth and the 2008 multiple international award-winning Firaaq. Her upcoming 2010 movies include Sudhir Mishra's Tera Kya Hoga Johnny, Before the Rains and Midnight's Children - the latter written and directed by Deepa Mehta in collaboration with the author of the novel, Salman Rushdie.

In Mirch, 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 where a married man catches his wife red-handed with another man but the cheating wife gets away 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?
