Bonjour Ji revolves around two characters who feel sidelined by each other’s community. But when they meet, they realize how a change in their perspective on other people can drive different behavior out of the same people.
A couple on vacation gets caught in a storm and seeks refuge in a stranger’s house. Through the long night they face issues past and present, after which nothing can ever be the same. The film is Director Aparna Sen’s tribute to legendary Bengali playwright and theatre personality Badal Sircar.
The film SAARI RAAT is a part of ZEE’s Peace Project which aims to bring together film makers, cultural exponents and thought leaders of both the neighboring nations of India and Pakistan on a single platform to facilitate an apolitical exchange environment of peace and harmony. This initiative is in line with Zee Entertainment’s corporate brand philosophy of ‘VASUDHAIVA KUTUMBAKAM’ which means ‘THE WORLD IS MY FAMILY.’
