Being Cyrus (2006) ~Teaser~
The story revolves around a Parsi family, Sethnas residing in the hills of Panchgani. A retired sculptor Dinshaw (Naseeruddin Shah) heads the family. Other members of the joint family comprise of Dinshaw’s wife Katy (Dimple Kapadia), brother Farokh (Boman Irani), sister-in-law Tina (Simone Singh) and second brother Fardoonjee (Honey Chhaya).
Then arrives Cyrus (Saif Ali Khan) at the Sethna house and stays on.
As the movie proceeds it gains a psychological insight into the family and reveals that everything is not all right with the Sethna family. Not just that, even Cyrus comes across as a bizarre personality.
Made under the banner of Times Infotainment Media Limited, Being Cyrus is produced by Ambika Hinduja, Dinesh Vijan, Raman Macker and Munnish Puri.
Actor Saif Ali Khan hasnâ€™t started â€˜greyingâ€™ yet, but at the rate heâ€™s maturing as an artiste and stepping into â€˜greyâ€™ areas (where no one dared to go before), he may soon compete with actors â€˜olderâ€™ in stature. When we asked him how it feels to be the â€˜darkâ€™ man in a darkly caustic film, Mr Clean Khan said,
Itâ€™s very interesting to do such roles. Itâ€™s like living on the edge. My roles like Ek Haseena Thi have been the most interesting ones. Actually I try to do films that I like watching. And this kind of on-the-edge cinema is what I enjoy watching the most.
Well Saif, these kinds of films will surely give you an â€˜edgeâ€™ over the other actors too, eh?
