Story: The film traces the journey of estranged brothers Shiv (Rahul Khanna) and Rana (Arjun Mathur) as they wander through life seeking redemption.

Review: A tragic incident in the past leaves the brothers scarred for life. Unable to put the past behind, the protagonists go their separate ways in an attempt to find purpose in life. Shiv gets married to Maya (Aadya Bedi) while Rana finds solace in the company of a spirited writer Michelle (Monica Dogra). But happiness doesn't come so easy, does it? Their lives fall apart once again as heartache and guilt take centre-stage. Painful memories come flooding back, leading them to the place where it all began.

You can never run away from your problems. You have to face them at some point and forgive yourself if you seek peace of mind. This message pretty much lies at the heart of this film. If you record your thoughts and install a camera to capture your moods, the result would turn out to be somewhat like Fireflies.

If unhurried, self-indulgent, elegantly executed artistic cinema appeals to you, you'll like this one. The songs are cathartic and lend meaning to the situations. Cinematography is a highlight too - the camera beautifully lingers on faces as feelings find a voice. All the actors do a fine job but it is Arjun Mathur who stands out with his understated act.

However, in spite of the visual beauty of it all, what doesn't go in the film's favour is the story that drifts away and refuses to get back on track. Once you get past the loss and longing that haunts the characters, there is nothing new that adds to the story or takes it forward. The stagnancy gets repetitive and ineffective beyond a point.

Overall, the 'darkness' stays on for way too long, thanks to the troubled characters and their complicated relationships. If you are attracted to such melancholia, go for this one.
