Socha Na Tha at 7 PM on 13th February (Tata Play Romance) | Channel #113
Imtiaz Ali is known as the love guru of Hindi cinema, and his association with a project brings a certain amount of credibility to the film. With his debut film Socha Na Tha, Imtiaz Ali gave us a glimpse into the world of love that makes you want to fall in love. Though we have all seen this slice of life movie, we dare you to change the channel if you stumble upon this again. The film features the confused couple Abhay Deol and Ayesha Takia and showcases the hotchpotch they create while trying to be rebels and finding resonance with their inner voice that lurks for each other. Socha Na Tha also marks Imtiaz’s debut into the direction world, and rest, as they say, is history!
