Say farewell to 2019 with this 2-4-1, ‘radical for the 80s’, romantic drama!

ARTH [MEANING] tells the story of a young housewife Pooja, struggling to make sense of her life after being left by her husband for another woman. The film brings an intimacy and emotional depth uncommon for the time, exposing its two protagonists through moments of desperation, guilt and jealousy. Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil, two of India’s top actresses, deliver powerhouse performances and elevate the conventional wife vs mistress rivalry into an emotionally charged portrait of two women in love with the same man.

Come in and find a little ‘arth’ before ringing in the New Year– this National Film Award winning, Bollywood drama is a must see!
