Ruiz Pereira (Shah) returns to his native Goa
and visits the old mansion where he spent his
youth. The film nostalgically evokes in
flashback the hybrid Portuguese-Indian
colonial world in terms of adolescent passions
and complicated wedding arrangements.
Intended as a Bergman-like saga of a family,
using extensive quotations from his filmmaking
style including candle-lit sequences as
the entire family sits down to a festive dinner.
Goa’s best-known pop singer Remo Fernandes
wrote the number Panch vorsam in Konkani
for this film, but it was actually used in an
adapted Hindi version.
