The Unforgettable” depicts the stark contrast in individualistic beliefs interwoven in a web of romance, mystery, travesty and triumph.
Yash, a renaissance man, a writer who teaches the world how to live, loses his life’s teachings when he meets Padma, a woman who cannot be taught anything, an amoralist, veiling her true self with a shroud of clandestinity.
Yash goes to the salubrious country of Mauritius to write a book on his groundbreaking apotheosis, ‘Sex- The Parasitic Desire’. But the cynicism of life is such that at the pinnacle of his career, he meets Padma and she transmogrifies his perspective. At first she comes across as an intrigant, eager to prove her point, defending her reason over right. She practices the art of living by employing the simplest ideology of non- intervention and submission to one’s desire. This thought totally contradicts with the fundamentals of Yash’s teachings, in their amalgamation it is imperative that one has to concede. Their conflicting beliefs and an obsessive attraction towards each other drives them apart.
Having found solace in Padma, Yash had all but rewritten the story of his life; but he failed to prognosticate Padma’s abrupt disappearance. His life’s work disintegrates in the confines of his mind. He has to find answers to the questions that have pervaded his sanctity, but his answers lie with a woman who has over-turned his life in a brief concupiscence. Can he find Padma? Can an illusory be traced back without the pursuer falling into a trap of further deceit? Will her pursuit lead a man of such enormity into self-destruction? Will the labor of his life be lost to a moment of insanity?
The Unforgettable is a story of an unusual love, a story about an interminable romance, a love story told through all the ugliness that makes love the greatest emotion there is.
