India 24 - Mundane tales, cliche, acute events and ordinary lives from around India intersect over a period of 24 hours to form a unique montage which provides insight into the irony of power play, corruption and mutual exploitation in contemporary India. Individuals from different social and economic strata, with varied motivations, occupations and preoccupations struggle frantically to strike balance in their lives inter-weaved with each other through webbing of love, sex, jealousy, fantasy, deceit, conceit and violence in an indifferent uninspiring world in utmost need of a hero but without any.
3 on a Bed - 3 people - one woman and two men share a bed to celebrate friendship that ensues the most democratic and secular form of being where the 'one true love' can be shared in the most selfless way through the union of minds and bodies together in our very real, mundane and pragmatic world. Can the 'polyamoric' lifestyle of the ménage-de-trios help them overcome all such issues of jealousy, possessiveness and sexual hegemony that lies hidden in every conjugal relationship through their feelings of empathy and compassion or does their relationship go the well beaten way of people shredding themselves to pieces over power, position and possession?
1 Day for Love - Through the evaluation of her personal paranoia associated with Holi, the festival of colors - a day for free mixing of the sexes and free expression of love, and its evolution over a period of three decades a young woman takes a look at the changing dynamics of gender politics and social discrimination culminating in an all encompassing erosion of social bonding and an innate growth of indifference, all centering around this day reflecting and refracting through the many loves of her life.
