The celebrated poet and filmmaker Gulzar explores the Aandhi of a relationship between a man and a woman caught between love and ambition, mingling political comment with a mature love story to evoke the picture of a tender relationship.
JK, the manager of Hotel Aashiana, finds his life coming apart at the seams when his wife, Arti Devi, storm into his hotel after a separation of nine long years. She has come to contest the elections but the stage is set for something else..
In a beautiful and quite riveting fashion, Gulzar transforms the form of story-telling crisscrossing the past and the present and what begins as a portrait of politics becomes a portrait of an extraordinary relationship between a man and a woman who need not be tethered to each other to complement each other.
