Hindi movie The Taste Of Relation posterMay 16, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) The Taste of Relation - a Canadian Hindi film by award-winning actor and film-maker Mukesh Asopa, has created waves at the 5th CYPRUS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2010 by being the first Hindi film nominated and officially selected in this festival in the prestigious Golden Aphrodite category.

The Taste Of Relation is directed by acclaimed Canadian-Indian film-maker Mukesh Asopa who grew up in Calcutta. Music is composed by Farita and Righteous.

The Taste of Relation is a story of relationship between a father, his adopted son, his own son and daughter, his mother and wife, also with the situations of different phases in life. It represents an Indian family settled in Canada where the eastern culture, family values, respect and regards are compared with the Western culture and values. We see different tastes of relations at different points of our lives some are sweet, some are salty, some are sour and some are very bitter; but there is one truth: A service to mankind can be the gift of your life.

CYIFF (Cyprus International Film Festival) is the first internationally oriented film festival which offers new and upcoming directors in multiple sectors of entertainment (such as feature films, short films, animations, music videos, dance films and video art) the opportunity to showcase their talent in front of a jury of internationally acclaimed cinema experts, directors and actors. The awards are the "GOLDEN APHRODITE", film reels as well as crew services and shooting equipment prizes. Equally unique is the condition that these prizes must be utilized for their next project and spent in Cyprus and/or Greece.
