Amol Palekar has earlier made films on sexuality based themes like Daayra and Anaahat. With his first English film Quest he completes his trilogy on the subject.
A film starring Mrinal Kulkarni and having alternate sexuality as the backdrop. The trailer begins when the leading lady finds out that her husband is having a homo-sexual relationship behind her back and decides to leave him. What follows is the different reactions of the situation from various people.
- If the third person was a man why did you feel threatened?
- We live like you except that we love someone of the same sex.
- And in the midst of it all the husband goes - I didn't intend to cheat on her.
In its 30-second duration the trailer might not be flashy enough to grab your attention but it succeeds in conveying its message.
