Life Mein Kabhie Kabhiee is the story of five friends, five years, one goal — happiness.
Cast: Aftab Shivdasani, Dino Morea, Anuj Sawhney
Manish [Aftab Shivdasani], Rajeev [Dino Morea], Jai [Sameer Dattani], Mona [Nauheed Cyrusi] and Ishita [Anjori Alagh] get drunk and have a bet that who out of them would be the happiest in life. They give themselves five years. At the end of five years, Manish would decide who was the happiest.
All of them have different ideas of happiness —
Rajeev thinks that to be the best in what you do is happiness
Mona thinks fame is happiness
Jai thinks power is happiness
Ishita thinks money is what happiness is all about.
Life Mein Kabhie Kabhiee is the journey of these five friends. It talks of success and failure, triumphs and tribulations, hope and despair, happiness and sadness and of course, the final question.
Who will win the bet?
Like many of Bhatt’s works LMKK is suffused with characters. Miraculously they all seem to have a life even when Pravin Bhatt’s camera isn’t looking. Bhatt gives each of the five protagonists a reverberant existence that takes them beyond the stylised sets and clichÃ©d locations, (does a film on the young have to have happy songs on the beach and the pub?) sometimes straight into our hearts, sometimes a little higher.
