Short Film (35mm, Color) 1999
In one hour, Nadia, who loves horses and Bollywood films, will glide into church to marry Henry, a man with a big heart, a safe job, and a formidable family. The only problem is Siddhartha, Henry’s best friend and Nadia’s old flame. Not until Sid finds himself fulfilling his duties as Best Man does he realize that the love of his life is about to leave him forever. With scathing irony, spectacular visuals and sensational music, this infectious comedy explores the fears, frailties and fantasies that conspire against our hearts’ truest desires.
