Young, beautiful, and intelligent Maya lives with her father in a palatial mansion in rural India. When her father suffers a stroke, she calls for the local Dr. Charu Das, who arrives on his bicycle and prescribes treatment for her dad. He comes often, more on the pretext of seeing her, than her dad, and eventually both get married. Years pass by, and Charu is busy engrossed in treating patients, leaving Maya alone to ponder her own fate and life. And it is not long before a young man named Rudra enters her life, and an affair follows. This affair does not last long, as a much younger man, Lalit, now enters Maya’s life, and thence begins another passionate affair. But again, Maya is not satisfied. She longs for more than bodily needs, and it is perhaps this that leads to her sudden death, leaving two investigators to probe who or what really killed Maya.

User Reviews: This movie was a journey – either perfectly paced for its themes, or incredibly slow for some of its audience

i choose the latter, the movie has not been made to be for the masses, but made to gain critical praise

Maya Memsaab is tormented by her search for non-fleeting, unconditional love, perhaps to distract her from her own lost and wandering thoughts

very universal themes made in the Indian sense, with similarities to such classics as Lekin or Rudaali, sharing the combined force of the Mangeshkar siblings and Gulzar, and now-stalwart actors when they were starting out

An art-house movie which lived up to what i had heard and expected
