PNC`s Ek Tho Chance marks the return of Saeed Akhtar Mirza (Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyun Aata Hain, Salim Lande Pe Mat Ro,MOhan Joshi Haazir Ho Nukkad), One of Indian cinema`s greatest legends and one of the few Indian film makers to have been officially invited to screen his film at The directors` Fortnight, Cannes. The film tells the tale of Mumbai city and the millions who get off the train at VT station every second of the day hopping to latch on to the magic of Mumbai.
This film is a colorful mural of the lives of individuals from Bombay city`s diverse cultural, social & economic strata. Its multiple tracks trace the hopeful, the aspirational &sometimes desperate lives of people who inhabit the city. These distinct tracks run simultaneously along the film, touching and crossing each other ever so often, and finally converge towards a unique and exciting climax.
Ek Tho Chance is aimed at showing Mumbai as a glorious collage of naive dreams, young aspirations, determined grit, cynicism and optimism that is so much a character of this vast metropolis; and all this with the will to look oueselves in the eye.
