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 hasn’t started ‘greying’ yet, but at the rate he’s maturing as an artiste and stepping into ‘grey’ areas (where no one dared to go before), he may soon compete with actors ‘older’ in stature. When we asked him how it feels to be the ‘dark’ man in a darkly caustic film, Mr Clean Khan said,

It’s very interesting to do such roles. It’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 ‘edge’ over the other actors too, eh?
