Some things in life are worth waiting for… the first LoubsLa Décima (!!!)… a 2nd World Cupa Birkin… X-mases… the first Grand Slam win… a trip to Paris… a meal at Noma… and, Rahul Khanna’s next film! Until it comes out, we have the synopsis, and, some gorgeous stills (heavy on R, obv. :-p) for you – to salivate over :-) (Yeah, we are thoughtful like that.)

Fireflies is the story of two brothers – Shiv and Rana. Shiv, a successful banker, lives in the superficial glitter of corporate Bombay, while the younger brother Rana, a law school dropout, gets by restoring vintage motorcycles at a friend’s garage in the anonymous shadowy by-lanes of Bombay. Though worldly achievements and illusions briefly illuminate the brothers’ journeys, a tragedy that befell them fifteen years ago seems destined to repeat itself, just in newer incarnations. Flames suddenly extinguish again, in an eerie heartbeat… Voices and visions from the past and the magic realism of the years gone by, beckon the brothers to find the picture in the puzzle, scattered so long ago. Fireflies are the recurring theme of the film; those luminous creations that come out of the darkest of darkness, just to light up the imagination of the innocent. They live their fullest, as long as the glow lasts. Even if it is lifetime, being lived a day.

The film – to release in both Hindi and English with an approximate running time of 98 minutes − is directed by Sabal Singh Shekhawat. The music’s by Zubin Balaporia, of Indus Creed. And, here’s another useless bit of info to clutter your brain: the song Fireflies from Indus Creed’s latest album, Evolve, was inspired by the film.
