Being Cyrus snakes into an intriguing psychological drama, but unravels almost like a quaint comedy. The tale revolves around the rather dysfunctional Sethna family and swings between Panchgani (Katy & Dinshaw Sethna's home) and an old dilapidated building in Mumbai (where Dinshaw's aged father, Fardoonjee Sethna, his brother, Farokh, and Farokh's wife, Tina, live in apparent conflict). Dinshaw Sethna is a dope-smoking retired sculptor, who lives in the secluded hills around a small hill station called Panchgani. Dinshaw opens his house to a stranger, Cyrus, who gratefully accepts his invitation as well as his wife, Katy Sethna. As Cyrus befriends and enters into the family as Dinshaw's sculpting apprentice, all the cracks begin to open. The layers unfold and things do not seem quite right. What's more is that nothing about Cyrus seems quite right either. The six colorful characters play against each other in a bizarre opus of repartee.

Being Cyrus journeys through mind-spaces, though it lends itself as a great new take on classic Film Noir. And although it aims to take the audience on a confusing goose chase, we are left in uncertainty for some time about the crimes committed, and the end ties up conclusively apart from the protagonist's own predicament. The story is narrated by the protagonist, Cyrus, who himself sits at the brink of his dilemma of why life is the way it is.

Being Cyrus is an obsessive, inconclusive, disorderly, and strangely humane story about an outsider struggling to get inside himself. It's a thought provoking film that will take the audience through a journey of emotions with alarming twists.
