Suraj Ka Satwan Ghoda

aka The Seventh Horse of the Sun 1992 130’ col Hindi d Shyam Benegal pc NFDC s Shama Zaidi from Dharamvir Bharati’s novel c Piyush Shah m Vanraj Bhatia lp Amrish Puri, Neena Gupta, K.K. Raina, Pallavi Joshi, Raghuvir Yadav In Allahabad in UP, every evening, the bachelor Manek Mulla (Puri) tells stories to a group of friends gathering at his house. Over two evenings, he tells three stories: apparently about his own boyhood, adolescence and adulthood. Each centres on a relationship with a woman and they rehearse the notions of romance, love and separation. After the stories, the friends discuss them. This bitter-sweet comedy, shot by one of India’s most outstanding cinematographers, about a man’s smug but immature attitudes towards women also raises questions about the distinctions between memory, reality and fantasy.
