It has been sixteen years since they were paired together and now they are coming together again as love interest in the romantic urban comedy made by Kabir Sadanand. Incidentally, Kabir had given the script to Dimple Kapadia three years ago and she was enthused by it, and her excitement knew no bounds when Nana Patekar agreed to play the role of her lover in TUM MILO TOH SAHI.
In TUM MILO TOH SAHI Dimple Kapadia plays the role of a middle age Parsi lady, who runs an Irani café. Incidentally, Dimple Kapadia has featured in the same kind of role in SAAGAR as well, where she was the daughter of Syed Jafri who had the eating joint that served all kind of food. Dimple is sure to revive the old and mystic world of an Irani café through her interpretation of the role, and could tell the world how important this institution had been in evolution of the city called Bombay and how as the city assumed new name Mumbai in this new identity the landmark in the form of Iranian cafes is on the way out from the city.
TUM MILO TOH SAHI is more an angst about being lonely in a city of the magnitude of Mumbai, a fait accompli for quite a lot of people, and how they can cope with the loneliness by looking for a person who can be there to hold the hands when hands start trembling and the specter of loneliness creeps into the psyche as the night descends to spread its ambience.
Binding element of TUM MILO TOH SAHI is the relationships and emphasis is to preserve them at all costs. Relationships may not be those that trace their linkage through blood, but relationships that evolve as a part of seeking moorings in a mega-city like Mumbai, and may be the title TUM MILO TOH SAHI is apt underlining of the title. If taken into its hidden meaning, TUM MILO TOH SAHI is a quest for search of a relationship that one would try to preserve at all costs.
The importance of relationships in TUM MILO TOH SAHI has a span of generations so Vidya Malvane presents a generation of the present times along with Rehan Khan. It could be fortuitous for TUM MILO TOH SAHI as Nana Patekar is for the first time promoting the film in a big way, and it could turn out to be blessing in disguise for the film and may be audience could also be enticed to meet TUM MILO TOH SAHI in a big way.
