Cast: Dimple Kapadia, Saif Ali Khan, Naseeruddin Shah, Boman Irani, Simone Singh
Director: Homi Adjania

Storyline: The film revolves around a dysfunctional Parsi family headed by a retired sculptor Dinshaw Sethna (Naseeruddin Shah). He lives with his ill-tempered wife Katy (Dimple Kapadia) in the hills of Panchgani in Maharashtra. His younger brother Farookh (played by Boman Irani), who lives in Mumbai with his wife Tina (Simone Singh), is unbelievably contemptuous in his behaviour.

Then arrives Cyrus, Saif Ali Khan, a drifter and an aspiring sculptor at the Sethna house to learn the art of sculpting from Dinshaw.

As the movie proceeds, it gains a psychological insight into the family and reveals that everything is not all right with the Sethna family. Not just that, even Cyrus comes across as a bizarre personality. And his character becomes more complicated when he gets involved with Dinshaw's wife.

The powerhouse starcast has already raised expectations. Cinelovers are in for a treat. Get ready for a slew of sleek and sensitive performances from the stellar cast.
