Not reviewed at press time. The always ravishing Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai stars as the wife of a Booker Prize-winning author who is suffering from writer's block. He encourages her to engage in a steamy affair with another man in order to provide him with material for his new novel. Reality and fiction are on a collision course in this new Hindi-language drama (with music, of course). This print is in Hindi and has no subtitles.
