'Strangers' - a Bollywood take on failed marriages
MUMBAI (Reuters) - Frustrated by their failed marriages, two men launch a bizarre plot to kill each other's wives in a new Bollywood thriller that takes a look at the complexities of the human mind.
"Strangers", directed by Anand Rai, narrates the tale of the duo who in a chance meeting discuss their private lives, failed marriages and the everlasting effect it has had on them.
"It (the film) is very realistic in its approach," said actor Jimmy Shergill, who plays the role of a writer with a dwindling career in the film. "It's a thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It will show how complex the human mind is."
"As it sometimes happen in real life, we meet a stranger and find that person so interesting that our conversation become a little personal, the film is also about this," he added.
"The conversations of the two strangers in the film bring out their unhappy married lives and this emotional discussion leads them to suddenly decide to kill each other's wives," he said.
Shergill said there was an inherent twist in the tale that makes the plot intriguing at its climax.
"It is also a film about choices," he said. "One of them will realise that finishing off someone is not a practical solution to the problems of life. The problems need to be solved rationally."
The film also casts Kay Kay Menon, Sonali Kulkarni and Nandana Sen.
Menon plays the role of a management professional in a difficult relationship with his wife who loses her mental balance after their son’s death.
"Strangers" is set to open on December 7 which is also the release date for two other Bollywood movies "Khoya Khoya Chand" and "Dus Kahaniyaan".
