After making three period films consecutively - DHYAASPARVA, ANAAHAT, PAHELI - Amol Palekar has made QUEST that offers a very fast pace, contemporary depiction of an urban couple's life. Sai and Aditya weave their lives together through professional pressures, personal confusions, and individual dilemmas. Their 'quest' for finding solutions despite the disillusive reality remains incessant.
Marked by its very well edged screenplay, ace performances and adroit direction, QUEST has been already selected in many foreign festivals. The Brisbane Film Festival (Australia) will host the world premier of QUEST on 6th July 2006.
This bilingual film (THAANG in Marathi) will be released in India in the month of August, 2006.
Known for perfect casting for his characters, Palekar is very happy with performances of MRINAL KULKARNI, RISHI DESHPANDE, SHISHIR SHARMA and VIJAYA MEHTA. QUEST is the first English film made by him. The story, screenplay and dialogue are credited to Sandhya Gokhale while Debu Deodhar is the cinematographer.
