“Life Express” is a film based on the dilemmas faced by two women from two different strata of society. It is a passionate and encapsulating story of an urban educated couple, Tanvi (Rituparna Sengupta) and Nikhil (Kiran Janjani), and their successful fast-paced life and their need for parenthood and it is also a story of Gouri (Divya Dutta) and Mohan(Yashpal Sharma), who live a life far from the din and bustle of the city, far from the one lived by Tanvi and Nikhil, and their need for wealth.
With ease the story moves from the busy streets of urban city to the desolate red-soiled dusty lanes of a rural India and brings to the fore-front the cross currents of human emotions and sentiments. It helps one understand motherhood in a way Indian films haven't showcased before. The film narrates a story never told in Hindi films. It sheds light on those mothers who have always remain in the dilemma of the cross road between materialistic aspirations and motherhood. “Life Express” is really an experience, a journey and challenges there in.
This story weaves a captivating soul searching story of woman’s need for motherhood and materialistic aspirations. This film also touches upon various facets of life in the real sense i.e. of love, hatred, relationships, responsibilities, defiance and greed. Will the Tanvi and Gouri achieve what they strive for? Or will the desire for materialistic needs overshadow even the greatest gift of motherhood…
