Summary: Saawariya is a timeless story of two young, star-crossed lovers whose passions almost consume their will to the brink of self-destruction. In this eternal ode to romance stand two lonely souls whose childlike innocence and candor only obscures their inner turmoil, anger, anxiety, and desperate longing for love. An artist, free spirit, idealist, and dreamer, Raj is certain that he has found his ultimate dream when he arrives in a quaint, picturesque town. It's a place surrounded by mountains, shrouded in mist, and enveloped in beauty, mythical enough to be a painter's vision or a poet's memory. However, destiny paints a different picture for Raj. One silent bright and starry night, he spots a mysterious girl draped in black, standing alone at a bridge. This chance encounter introduces him to Sakina, a shy and quiet, melancholic and enigmatic girl who intrigues him. Thus follows the beginning of a new friendship, where Raj with his most-charming ways and an undying spirit tries to win Sakina's heart. Raj is unable to accept her haunting past, and their friendship pulls him into a whirlwind of desire, madness, and romance. (Sony)
