After the critically acclaimed GODMOTHER, director Vinay Shukla once again tackles the power issue in a man- woman relationship in MIRCH. The film releases on 10th December, 2010.

He says, 'One character in MIRCH says, 'my grandmother used to say that when the mind is in a dilemma, one should listen to stories: stories are a treasure trove of wisdom.' Another character, at another point, declares that stories are magic. I believe that a civilization dies when it stops telling stories.'

He further adds, 'MIRCH is structured like a square with a cross-section of 4 squares within it. Each square represents one season, has a different colour-palette and contains a story complete in itself with a witty twist in the end. The stories run the course of time; from ancient India to today's India. The first story has been sourced from the ancient Sanskrit classic, the Panchtantra; the source of the second story is the 14th century Italian classic, the 'Decameron,' by Boccaccio. Inspiration for the third story comes from another ancient Italian story. Rest of the 2 stories are penned by me. While, under the garb of adultery, these stories celebrate womanhood; the film, also, grapples with the perennial conflict between the artist and the marketing forces.'

MIRCH stars Konkona Sen Sharma, Raima Sen, Boman Irani, Shreyas Talpade, Rajpal Yadav, Shahana Goswami and Arunoday Singh.
