    • CELEBRATED NOVELIST SARAT CHANDRA CHATTOPADHYAY’S POETIC PROSE COMES TO LIFE IN VIDHU VINOD CHOPRA’S CINEMATIC ADAPTATION OF PARINEETA – "The Married Woman".
      The city of Kolkata – 1962. A city so vibrant, so alive, so stylish, it was referred to as ‘The Paris of the East’. The exotic backdrop serves as the perfect locale for the tender, immortal love story about to unfold.
      A young girl: Lolita, orphaned at an early age, is sent to live with her uncle’s family, where destiny introduces her to… A young boy: Shekhar, a budding musician, the son of an affluent businessman.
      Together, through childhood and adolescence, Shekhar and Lolita share joys and sorrows, fond of memories and bittersweet experiences… and unknown to them, a relationship of deep friendship and trust takes place. It is unspoken right they hold over each other that metamorphoses into a love so intense, they do not even see it coming.
      It takes the arrival of an outsider, Girish, for them to discover their true feelings for each other. The chemistry between Lolita and Shekhar sizzles and sparkles, till it explodes. But fate has something else in store for them.
      Greed, deception and malicious intent are waiting to plague Lolita’s and Shekhar’s innocent love. Events twist and turn beyond their control, spin around them in a maze of suspicion, misunderstandings and high tempers…till even their love cannot stop them from being torn apart.
      Can true love conquer these insurmountable obstacles, or will it succumb to them? Will Lolita and Shekhar be forever swept apart by these tumultuous events or can they fulfill their destiny and come back together?
      Watch the contemporary retelling of this engaging and timeless tale rich with human emotions and universal drama, enhanced by a chart-busting musical score, and accented by unforgettable performances by Sanjay Dutt, Saif Ali Khan, Raima Sen, Dia Mirza and award-winning debutante, Vidya Balan.
