Suraj Ka Satvan Ghoda (1992)
Also Known As: The Seventh Horse Of The Sun
Category: Feature Film
Genre: Drama, Romance
This film narrative takes place over seven days during which time Manek Mulla, a young man barely out of his teens, tells three stories about himself. These stories revolve around Manek's involvement with women. In each case one or another circumstances leads to his separation from his beloved. The tone of the stories is 'tongue-in-cheek' and sometimes borders on the fantastic and surreal. There is consistency and ambiguity - a blurring of a distinction between the real and the invented.
For Menak Mulla, the purpose of telling these stories is to define the meaning of love. As it transpires, none of the stories Manek tells actually define love.... If they do, they define what love is not.
The film is a comedy but not without a twinge of pain and a sense of loss.
