Each evening, Manek Mulla, a young bachelor, has a collection of friends gather at his house to discuss literature and life and enjoy his skill as a raconteur and teller of tales. Imaginative and loquacious, Manek tells three stories about three women he met at different stages of his life.

Our take

Based on a novel by Hindi author Dharamvir Bharati, The Seventh Horse of the Sun weaves reality with fiction to create a mystical ode to the art of storytelling. A poignant meditation on romance, class, and the passing of time, this is a subtly layered portrayal of life ethics in 1990s India.
