Ritesh Batra (The Lunchbox) returns with a delicate tale of quiet romance that finds the beauty in fleeting moments of connection amidst the chaos of an increasingly stratified city. Rafi works as a street photographer in frenzied Mumbai, snapping portraits for tourists at the city's landmarks. When his ailing grandmother—who always wanted Rafi to start a family—comes to visit, he scrambles to appease her. A chance encounter with kind-hearted Miloni offers the perfect opportunity, since she is happy to play along as Rafi's pretend companion. As the scheme throws into sharp relief the class differences and obstacles that stand in the way of such a union, the line between hypothetical and real affections grows ever hazier. Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra bring warmth and vulnerability to Rafi and Miloni's bittersweet coupling as Batra masterfully reminds us of the joy of sharing life's small pleasures. —Sundance Film Festival
