Bombay Talkie was, together with Shakespeare Wallah, the property that brought worldwide recognition to the Merchant-Ivory filmmaking team. Jennifer Kendal plays a British writer, seeking out new adventures in India. The writer comes across actor Shashi Kapoor and his director Zia Mohyeddin and has romantic relations with both, thereby opening up a culture-clash can of worms. The script is by Merchant-Ivory perennial Ruth Prawer Jhabvala.
