New Delhi, April 14 (IANS) After bagging the best feature film award at the South Asian Film Festival in New York, Tanuja Chandra's first English language movie 'Hope And A Little Sugar' will hit Indian screens Friday.

Set in New York in the weeks before and after 9/11, the film stars Anupam Kher, Mahima Chaudhry, Suhasini Mulay, Vikram Chatwal, Ranjit Choudhary and Amit Sial.

The film about the romance between an aspiring Muslim photograpHope And A Little Sugarher and a young married Sikh woman is a high voltage emotional drama where religion becomes the root cause of every problem.

Bike messenger Ali Siddiqui (Amit Sial) meets the beautiful Saloni (Mahima Chaudhry), a charismatic sweet shop owner who encourages his photography and becomes his muse.

Despite Ali's secret and largely unrequited crush on Saloni, he develops a close friendship with her and her husband Harry (Vikram Chatwal). But their camaraderie gets a blow when terrorists attack the twin towers Sep 11, 2001.

Saloni's father-in-law, a retired army colonel (Anupam Kher), is devastated by grief and directs his longstanding animosity towards Muslims at Ali, as the young man's affections for Saloni grow increasingly evident.

However, the colonel's wife (Suhasini Mulay) bravely tries to pacify, but she fails to calm down her husband who threatens to bring everything to a violent end.

Director Chandra, who started her career with a hit thriller like 'Dushman', hasn't been able to please the box office lately. Her previous releases, 'Zindaggi Rocks' and 'Film Star', couldn't rock the box office.

She hopes to strike a chord with this emotional drama.
