A filmmaker with a midlife crisis meets a mysterious young girl who reminds him of his first girlfriend at first, and subsequently, of every woman in his life. Who is she? Is she real or imaginary? A stalker or a ghost? His past catching up or a character from the script he is writing? A bold and original take on man-woman relationships, `X: Past Is Present` is a one-of-its-kind feature where 11 Indian filmmakers with strikingly different cinematic styles have come together to make different parts of the same film. One story told through the eyes of 11 unique storytellers.

It is a marvel that X: Past Is Present, as a whole, lands firmly on its feet and keeps its balance. With 11 different directors taking turns to narrate a single story about a man who survives a series of failed relationships it delivers a melange of styles, genres and colour palettes. But one thing that X: Past Is Present certainly isn`t is incoherent. ...Read full review
