Kolkata is united by the rainy season and also by a late night radio show.
As hard as it is to believe, Onir would like you to imagine that watchmen, young biker boys, college students and young professionals are all tuned into Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz, mesmerised by a sublime voice and lilting poetry.
It is perhaps the only hour of the day this audience is not staring into their smart phones and sharing forwards or liking Insta-posts.
The story line of the movie is , Every night at 10, Kolkata tunes into radio to listen to ‘Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz’, an episodic series of unrequited love stories hosted by RJ Alfaaz who, despite his tremendous following, prefers staying detached and anonymous.
Among his many fans is the boisterous Archana, a girl working at a creative agency, which designs branded memes.
She is leukodermic but lives life to the fullest.
They talk, for the first time over a misplaced call, when Archana accidentally dials Alfaaz’s number, while trying to connect with her latest blind date.
A friendship blossoms between the two strangers hidden behind their digital screens.
It quickly translates in to a whirlwind of romance, until they bare their true selves to each other.
In a statement, director Onir said ‘The story brought together two characters who were both in need of healing. The only difference being that one’s wounds are internal while the other carries her scars outwardly.”
Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz is set in a world of pings, beeps, forwards and rhyme laced with a leisureliness that has become associated with Kolkata.–CINEWS
