Shobhna's Seven Nights (2012) Online
THANK YOU, MY LOVE - The film centres around the evolution and the final resolution of an unusual love story. The two protagonists are Shobhna, a woman in her early forties who is a successful writer with a tragic past and Saahil, a young man in his late twenties who is still struggling to find his foothold as a film actor. They meet under very unusual circumstances ostensibly for sex for one night. What unfolds is a story that goes beyond the realm of the senses to eventual realisation of what true love means in life.
