  • Deven, a professor at a small college in India, joyfully learns that he will have the chance to interview his hero, the famous Urdu poet, Nur. When the two men finally meet, Deven is startled to find Nur wallowing in drunkenness and surrounded by losers, including his two nagging wives. Frustrated and depressed with his interviews -- which are filled with nothing but Nur's alcohol-laden ramblings -- Deven returns home. There, he finds a package from Nur who, fearing his death is near, has sent all of his poetry to Deven.
