Movie Info

This ambitious and symbolic musical drama follows the eternal spirit of women as they inspire and confound men throughout the ages. As Science (Ashish Vidyarthi) and Art (Mohan Aghashe) debate who truly holds sway over the Universe, they ponder the story of Gaja Gamini (Madhuri Dixit), a mysterious and beautiful woman who, in her various incarnations over the ages, poses for Leonardo Da Vinci (Naseeruddin Shah) as he paints the Mona Lisa, acts as muse for Kalidas as he writes his poem Shakuntala, inspires a group of women to speak against their role as second-class citizens, and becomes a subject for a modern-day photographer (Shah Rukh). Gaja Gamini was the first feature film directed by well-respected Indian artist Maqbool Fida Husain, who also served as screenwriter, editor, and production designer for the project -- all at the age of 85! ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
