Story

Set in bureaucratic Lutyens’ Delhi and ancient exotic Jaisalmer, Chai Pani etc. is a bittersweet coming of age story, of earnest US returned filmmaker, Satya.

While subtle intense newbie, Zafar Karachiwala, as the idealistic Satya, struggles against official sloth, hypocrisy, corruption, and censorship, Konkona Sen ( National Award - Best Actress) brilliantly plays the two modern women who battle for his heart: the fun loving, ambitious fashion designer Radha and the elegant, sensitive Shanti, who works in a charity.

Adding to the chaos, is hilarious Sinia Duggal as Satya’s pushy aunt, who tries to trap him into a traditional marriage and hysterically funny Gaurav Kapur, as Satya’s cynical friend, who lives by the perverted rules of networks of power and patronage.



Director’s Intention

I wanted to tell this story about the loss of innocence, about the conflict between integrity and corruption, in a light and entertaining tone. So I used humor and irony in particular, to reveal the dilemmas and contradictions of characters struggling in a complex world.
