    • Synopsis
    • Swarnalatha (Shabana Azmi), a Carnatic music singer from a South Indian village, blames herself for the death of her son and her violinist-accompanist friend Vaishnavi (Ranjani Ramakrishnan) in a bus accident when they were on the way to the city to participate in a music concert.
      Fast forward twenty years later. Her dead friend's son Abhinay (Prakash Rao) and his girlfriend Pinky (Perizaad Zorabian) have caught the music bug and are itching to make it big and become famous. Abhinay returns to the village with Pinky following him soon after. Their common passion for music draws Abhinay and Pinky to Swarnalatha.
      Besides their passion for music, Swarnalatha, Abhinay and Pinky also share something else - the old accident on the bridge.
