Dharmvir Bharati's Suraj Ka Sātvān Ghoda =: Seventh Horse of the Sun

Loading...
During his free time in the afternoons, Manek entertains his friends in his house with stories. Love stories of three women from his past -- Jamuna, a middle-class girl, is in love with her lower-caste neighbor, Tanna, but eventually marries a rich, kindly man; Lily, an educated girl ends up marrying Tanna and resents being in her marriage; Satti, an impoverished girl, dreams of love but is sold by her adopted father to a repulsive and much older man. Each story is told separately but linked together by connecting incidents, which are told from different angles, creating a tapestry of characters and experiences, and an interesting construct for the film. This film is based on Dharmavir Bharati's novel of the same title.

The Wife

Loading...
After nearly forty years of marriage, Joan and Joe Castleman are complements. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as Great American Novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of Great Man's Wife. Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work. Joe's literary star has blazed since he and Joan first met in the late 1950s. The Wife interweaves the story of the couple's youthful passion and ambition with a portrait of a marriage, thirty-plus years later--a lifetime's shared compromises, secrets, betrayals, and mutual love.
