    • Synopsis
    • Amar is a successful film star, approaching 70. Wherever he goes, he is immediately surrounded by masses of people. Yet he lives alone, hidden away in Bombay, a city of 15 million souls. There are days when he sees no one at all. Twice a day his meals are delivered by Tara: 64 years old, restaurant owner and passionate cook. Amar has never met Tara – his meals are received brought to him by his driver. Tara knows Amar from the movies. She is in love with him. What began a year ago by chance has now become a ritual: for hours on end they speak with each other on the telephone, even when he is away from home.
      Amar feels like an 18 year old – he has also fallen in love with Tara. Neither of them would have dared to dream that this could happen to them once again. Now, for the first time, they have arranged to meet.
