In case you missed it, worth a look:
As we mentioned in our inaugural issue, this column will be devoted to telling you about creative films that may not have been blockbuster hits but in case you missed it, worth a look. "Mr & Mrs Iyer," made by Aparna Sen, is one such example. Not your average song-and-dance Bollywood fare, this film falls into a more serious social-drama category.

"Mr & Mrs Iyer" (2003):
Directed by Aparna Sen, Starring Rahul Bose, Konkona Sen and Bharat Kaul.
About 120 minutes.
