Synopsis
Her Champagne eyes, infectious smile and abounding idealism make Priya an adorable teenager, who earns a special spot in the heart of the Mother Superior at her convent school when she confesses that she would like to become a nun. Take a few sips of life before you decide, the kind mother surrogate wisely advises, but she touched by the young girl's fervour. Not just touched but totally smitten by a priya's unself - conscious attractions, meanwhile, is dashing Thomas, the suave foreign returned nephew of the mother superior who drops in to see his aunt and falls in love with priya instead! Enter Deva, the honey-tongued barber whom the lovelorn Thomas commissions to plyu cupid's emissary. But supprise, surprise, instead of diverting priya's lofty visions towards the dapper young businessman willing to lay the world at her feet, Deva finds himself getting drawn into the alluring web of her irresistible charm. The dramatic love tangle that follows, makes for a few unusual twists and turns shot against brilliant backdrops that heighten the tempo and keep the audience glued to their seats till all ends well. Does Thomas succeed in winning priya over? Does deva let his intra-personal conflict come in the way of his 'mission'? Or does the priya clamp her ebullience and don the nun's habit to renounce the world? The answer lie in SAPNAY - the dreamy maiden venture of GRAMCO FILMS- the newly set up film production wing of the Gramphone company of India Ltd. (better known countrywide as 'HMV'). Produced by AVM, Chennai, or for Gramco , SAPNAY is directed by Rajiv Menon - the whiz kid cinematographer who first introducer the wonders of steadicam to Bollywood badshas. Menon's hotshot reputation as master lensman (refer to Titan, Asian Paints, Dove ad campaigns for example) will scale new heights with SAPANY, in which his deft camera has captured haunting locales and sets that enhance the sensitive storyline and add an elemental depth to the emotions surging under the colourful canvas. Emotions that are accentuated further by the memorable montages and rapid cuts created by skilled editor Suresh Urs (from the mani ratnam bank). Playing Priya the guileless beauty who is caught between two conflicting goals and two dissimilar men, kajol has displayed a histrionic ability and maturity that lends added allure to her pixie good looks. While Arvind Swamy as Thomas and Mr.Dancing shoes- Prabhu Deva- as Deva- have given great performances, one must compliment the casting director whose choice of stars helps to highlight the basic differences in the characters they play. The icing on this perfect family cake, of course, is the bouncy score of the by - now legendary little giant -A.R.Rahman and the inimitable lyrics of literary grand master of hindi filmdom- Javed Akhtar. The spring in a number like 'Anwara Bhanware' or the swan song serenity of 'Chanda re Chanda' is sure to find a permanent place in the hearts of an audience that has, for over five decades now, thanks to HMV, given so many films a permanent place in its psyche because of the power and durability of their music. Certainly a star-spangled feather in the newly donned cap of the Gramophone Company of India, this refreshing must see film invites you to tread softly, for you tread on dreams!
