Director: Dheerendra Dwivedi | Hindi / Drama / 90 mins
‘Old Munk’ is about the past, and as we all know, past never dies. ‘Old Munk’ is about three characters - D. K., his wife and his wife’s friend Anjana who visits the couple after a long time.
‘Old Munk’ features the ups and downs of relationships, unfolds the mysteries of the past, tells the untold stories, reveals the hidden truth behind all the lies, tells some unknown facts and concerns different perceptions about some incidents. It engages the audience by allowing imagination to understand the truth, behind the actual truth. ‘Old Munk’ is based on Harold Pinter’s sexiest and cleverest play ‘Old Times’.
As Pinter says “ It happens”
