Manek Mullah, a storyteller, talks about three women he met at different stages in his life. These three women represent three different social backgrounds and influence Manek’s personality.

Our take

Based on a novel by Hindi author Dharamvir Bharati, The Seventh Horse of the Sun weaves reality with fiction to create a mystical ode to the art of storytelling. A poignant meditation on romance, class, and the passing of time, this is a subtly layered portrayal of life ethics in 1990s India.
