India Uncovered

Warner Brothers Pictures is about to release "the most telling account of modern India, amid the money and masala markets of New Mumbai" with the movie, 'Saas, Bahu Aur Sensex'.
It hits the screens across the UK on 19th September and is to be a "spicy dose of drama, comedy and emotion".
The new film is set against the backdrop of the money markets, the masala and the kitty parties of modern day Mumbai.
Directed by Canadian born filmmaker, Shona Urvashi, 'Saas, Bahu and Sensex' provides a kaleidoscopic view of modern India, a country that, whilst emerging as one of the world's leading superpowers, is also caught between modernity and conservatism; materialism and simple living; and progress and traditionalism.
It is these dichotomies that make for life stories that are at once engaging, humorous and touching.
Woven together with the intricacy and perfection of a sumptuous silk saree, the story unfolds around its central character, 'Nitya Sen' (played by rising star of Indian cinema Tanushree Dutta).
Nitya is a young woman who has to abandon her ambition of studying an MBA in the United States when she is uprooted by her mother from the family home in Kolkata and relocated to the alien environs of Navi (new) Mumbai, following her parents' divorce.
The mother - daughter relationship sinks to a low point so Nitya seeks solace in the company of 'Ritesh' (Anjur Khanna).
Ritesh, a colleague at the call centre where they both work, is among a dying breed of kind-hearted, principled young men in the city.
'Saas, Bahu Aur Sensex' offers an insightful and engaging view into a world caught between polarities, and how its inhabitants cope with the complexities that face them in their everyday lives, told through a story that seamlessly combines humour, pathos and drama.
