Rating: ****

Except for one story in this six-tiered ache cake with no icing , there is  nothing  unusual about the love stories that are a part of this cuddlesome omnibus.

What makes  Love Storiyaan  so desirable is its  unwavering  mood of love conquers all.Aekta  and Ullekh in the  first story An Unsuitable Girl  directed by Hardik Mehta are hardly your  Romeo and Juliet. She is  a 40-plus divorcee with two grownup daughters.  He  is a patient  suitor. And the real story here is  between Ullek and Aekta’s younger daughter whom he must win over before marriage happens.

It is this  quality of deflected affinity that  often  takes the seemingly routine relationship to the level close to an  epic love story.

 In  the  second story Love On Air set in arresting Assam,directed by Vivek Soni(whose voice is the third protagonist  from behind the camera) two disc jockeys  Rajni and Nick , he an incorrigible  womanizer and a fullblown alcoholic , try to  get a life  together. A third  party a blind woman named Mandira plays  a beautiful part as an unlikely Cupid. This story is actually structured  like a feature film, which is  quite  palatable but unnecessary.

The third story Homecoming directed by  Shazia Iqbal has Sunit  and Farida’s love blossoming during Bangladesh’s war of liberation .We see them as an aging couple in Kolkata still very much in love, he more than she perhaps.He keeps kissing her cheek darting heartmelting glances at her, as she  squeals and giggles at age 77.As they plan a trip back to  Bangladesh , the ‘epic’ format  of  storytelling begins to seem somewhat strained at the seams. This story deserved a  full-length  feature film.

Come to think of it, all  the six stories can be comfortably expanded  into feature films.Sunit in the above story must only be played by Jackie Shroff.

The  fourth story Raah Sungharsh Ki  directed Akshay Indikar, chronicles the love story of Subhadra and Rahul, two activists fighting for the rights of Adivasis. This is a love-during-the-time-of-turmoil interpretation  of the heart and its vagaries. The merger of fiction and fact, with the real characters coalescing comfortably with  their fictional counterpart, is achieved smoothly.

I would describe Faasley ,directed  by Archana Phadke,as  the  most impossible love  story of this eloquent omnibus. Looking at  Humayoun and Dhanya romancing marrying and staying together in spite of he being an Afghan and she coming from a conservative Kerala family, it seems love  can indeed conquer all.

Finally, Love  Beyond Labels, the incredible hard-to-believe  love story between a trans-woman Tista and a trans-man Bipin, both  of whom have undergone gender correctional surgery and are now blissfully together.This  story, sensitively directed by Collin d’Cunha is the best of the  scintillating sextet. Not that  other stories lack in anything. It’s just the hormonal harmony in Love Beyond Labels is the best  possible exemplification  of what Gulzar so succinctly  once said about love…Haath se choo ke isse rishton  ka ilzaam do.

 Just celebrate love, don’t try to slot or define it. This is what Love Storiyaan  does,most cogently and irresistibly.
