In his directorial debut My Brother Nikhil, Onir picked up a theme that was inventive. The film looked at the HIV/AIDS issue in Goa in the '80s, when not much was known about the pandemic/virulent disease. Also, it was perhaps the first Indian film that threw light on a gay relationship without making a mockery of one's sexual preferences.
In his second outing, Onir takes a look at relationships and how the lives of five people get entwined in a moment of madness. Worthy follow up by the director? Not really!
