Star Gold to air Honeymoon Travels


MUMBAI: Star Gold will be airing Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd on 16 July at 8:30 pm.

The film is directed by debutant director Reema Kagti and stars Booman Irani, Kay Kay Menon, Raima Sen, Amisha Patel, Shabana Azmi, Sandhya Mridul and Diya Mirza.

Honeymoon Travels is an off-beat drama weaving together the stories of six couples on their honeymoon on a tourist bus. There are old-timers Nahid and Oscar (Shabana and Irani) on their second marriages, reflective and forgiving of live.

Then there’s the Gujrati couple Hitesh and Shilpa (Ranvir and Diya) who can’t get anywhere near each other without scrabbling, the super-compatible Parsi couple Aspi and Zara (Abhay and Minissha), and the oddball NRI husband Bunty(Vikram Chatwal) with his desi, fun-loving wife Madhu (Sandhya Mridul).

Kay Kay Menon plays an uptight and insecure Bengali man Partho very much in love with his beautiful, free-spirited wife Milly (Raima Sen). And rounding off the sextet are the Kapoors, the Punjabi couple comprising of talkative Pinky (Amisha Patel) and contemplative Vicky (Karan Khanna).

The film starts off with the start of the bus journey, and Kagti throws us a couple of red herrings, like Shilpa crying her eyes out at going on the honeymoon. Then there’s an opinionated bus driver, and a mysterious motor-bike rider following the bus. And while everything looks lovey-dovey in the beginning, with familiarity and time, problems crop up. How each couple deals with their own specific problems is the rest of the film.
