When the carpenter hears the wife is having an affair, he doesnt believe it.
He pretends to leave for the city, but instead hides under the bed and a man (Arunoday) visits her.
Nitin likes the script, but is not very sure of its commercial prospects.
Vinay Shukla, who earlier directed the powerful Godmother, treats Mirch more like a play than a film.
Arunoday Singh is a struggling film writer trying to sell his story.
Overlook that and you can enter a world where women indeed are full-bodied flesh and blood characters. Tejpal Posted On Saturday, December 18, 2010 at AM Though billed as an adult film, Mirch ends up being more playful and witty rather than erotic in its telling, with a narrative style that follows a disarming simplicity.
Minimally shot and deftly written, the film has a distinct music score and explores the theme of sexuality, without ever getting vulgar, through a host of talented actors who play bit parts in four different stories.
Maanav is a struggling filmmaker who is unwilling to compromise on the script he has written.
His girlfriend Ruchi, a successful film editor, arranges for him to meet Nitin, a film producer.
When yet another producer (Sushant Singh) rejects his serious script, he starts narrating stories with sex at their centre.
The first story, from the Panchtantra, is about a carpenter (Rajpal Yadav) and his sensuous wife (Raima Sen) who loves him no end.
Add to this the turbulent romance between the scriptwriter and his girlfriend (Shahana Goswami) and you have a film that holds your attention. The garbled end and the misconstrued tenor of the film do act as a deterrent.
