Dir. Anu Menon. 2015, 92 mins. In Hindi and English with English subtitles. DCP. With Naseeruddin Shah, Kalki Koechlin, Rajat Kapoor. Two strangers in duress are thrown together by fate in this tender, moving comedic drama. Tara (Kalki Koechlin) is a brash, vivacious young newlywed whose life changes in an instant when a car crash leaves her husband in a coma; Shiv (Naseeruddin Shah) is a reserved older professor whose wife has been brain dead for eight months. Each facing a heartrending personal crisis, these vastly different souls overcome generational differences to form an unlikely bond amidst the sterile hospital corridors. Driven by charismatic, multilayered performances from the two leads, Waiting tackles serious themes with irresistible warmth and wit.
