After giving us a thought-provoking film like My Brother Nikhil , director Onir returns with Bas Ek Pal .

The film stars Sanjay Suri and Juhi Chawla yet again. However, it is Urmila Matondkar who plays the female lead. Jimmy Shergill is cast in a role almost parallel to Suri's. And there is the lesser-known Rehan Engineer (from 'Everybody Says I'm Fine') playing an alcoholic.

The film revolves around a group of friends who cease to be friends after a tragic incident.

Sanjay Suri plays Nikhil, a US-returned MBA graduate who lost his parents in an accident. One day Nikhil runs into a girl (Urmila Matondkar) at a disco pub in Mumbai. The girl helps him get an entry into the pub and this way the ice is broken between the two. But Nikhil doesn't get to know the girl's name. She maintains her distance. So he decides to pursue her.

Urmila Matondkar plays Anamika, a gorgeous looking girl who knows how to handle guys well. She already has a boyfriend with whom she hardly shares any romantic sparks. When she bumps into an anonymous guy at a disco-pub, she decides to make him wait and before making her own advance.

Jimmy Shergill plays Rahul, a suave businessman and a good friend of Nikhil. The two often test their skills on a basketball court. Nikhil's return from the US has revived their friendship. However, one tragedy separates these two friends forever.

Rehan Engineer plays Steve, an edgy, self-centered guy hooked on alcohol. His marriage with his wife is on the rocks because of his drinking habits.

Juhi Chawla plays Ira, Steve's wife. She somehow puts up with her alcoholic husband. There is no love but just compromise in their marriage. Ira works part time as a social worker. She also works at an old age home.

The movie's story takes its turn on a fateful night when Nikhil goes to the same disco pub again in order to meet the anonymous girl whom he can't seem to forget.

Anamika comes to the pub with her boyfriend. When Nikhil approaches her she does entertain him and is even on the point of accepting Nikhil's offer of a dance when her boyfriend (whom she doesn't love) intervenes. A heated argument follows between Nikhil and Anamika's beau. Rude words are exchanged and guns are drawn.

Accidentally, Nikhil's gun goes off.

'Bas Ek Pal' is about how one moment can change people's lives forever. It is the story of friends going astray, of love that is never found, of youth that is wasted doing time behind bars. The film's story throws a surprise at the fag end.

The film has music by four different composers - Pritam Chakraborty, Mithoon, Vivek Philip, Eric Pillai.

'Bas Ek Pal' is slated to hit the theatres in mid September.
