No one lives life as if death is around the corner. Intense, witty and moving, Dev & Simran is a graceful tribute to life.

Dev and Simran, A couple living in the heart of Bombay and grappling with everyday married life and the loss of a child.

Then Dev dies and Simran is left to pick up the pieces with the help of a close-knit group of friends. Grieving in their own personal ways for Dev, they try, as best they can, to support Simran through her ordeal. As this diverse group of people interact, reminisce and navigate some of life’s harshest, funniest and most ordinary moments, we share their agonies and joys, their personal hang-ups, their insecurities and strengths.


A sardonic self-story of a true blue Mumbaikar…funny, sad, profane.
-The Tribune

A slim, slice of life fantasia…de Souza achieves an odd serenity without lapsing into
-The Telegraph

Elegant, witty and pitilessly sharp.
