What happens when a motley bunch of characters comes together at a railway station in the wee hours of the morning?

In “Aisa Kehte Hain,” two circus artists are on the run from an inspector after trying to steal a lion, a tea shop owner and his assistant Chai play innocent pranks to entertain themselves, a man who has resolved to commit suicide encounters a “professional” who offers to help him with the act, and we meet a crow facing an acute existential crisis while living amidst his family of . . . pigeons.

Aisa Kehte Hain” is a story within the framework of a love story. A tale of all those blocks that build the individual one turns out to be – play, song, dance, happiness, instincts, reason, habits, fear, love, lies, and death. But is this really who an individual is – a mix of eccentric characters and charismatic emotions to go with them? Can they choose to also be someone else then? If so, who is the real “they” in all of this? And who is writing this story of theirs? Can this story have a happy ending? They say it can. At least they say so . . . Aisa kehte hain.
