Is there such a thing as a perfect woman? Husband and wife movie-making duo Marvel and Subhra Gima beg this very question in their ground-breaking debut feature film "The Perfect Woman." In the new independent movie, viewers dive headlong into the complex topics of love, marriage, and sex as seen through the eyes of a young Asian couple on the road toward wedded bliss.

Never before portrayed on the big screen, "The Perfect Woman" tells the story of Nisha and Suraj who are deeply in love but hold vastly contradictory views concerning marriage and love. Suraj is a traditionalist; conservative and conventional, he personifies the logical coherence with which he performs his daily work as a software professional. Conversely, energetic and upbeat Nisha exemplifies a veritable fun-loving and free attitude towards life.

While she is certain of her love for Suraj, Nisha is deterred by his structured view of marriage. Despite these clear contrasts, their love story unfolds until Nisha's world is rocked by a sudden, life-changing event. Torn between romanticism and reality, the young pair struggle to come to terms with the fact that Nisha may, in the end, not be the perfect woman for Suraj.

While love stories are boundless in Hollywood, this particular story has yet to be told in such a poignant and vivid manner, says Subhra Gima. "The Perfect Woman presents a subject that a lot of women who live in the darkness of different countries of the world are not aware of," she says.

A bevy of young Hollywood stars round out the movie's cast, including lead actors Ahmed Lucan and Sharlene Merchant. Soundtrack lyrics are entirely by the director himself Marvel Gima and are set over music recorded by Shaan, one of India's most well-known and popular Bollywood singers.

"The Perfect Woman" was professionally assembled by SM Productions, the company created by Marvel and Subhra Gima specifically for the film.

"SM Productions came into existence when our director Marvel Gima decided to go forward with the story he had in his mind for some time," Subhra Gima explains. "Our casting call took us from LA to New York when finally the characters came alive when Ahmed Lucan and Sharlene Merchant auditioned together."

An award-winning actor in his own right, Marvel Gima turned to directing to further his passion for the dramatic arts. Together with his wife, Gima began realizing the story for "The Perfect Woman" and has never looked back.

"We were excited because everything was falling into place," he explains. "We put together an excellent crew; each came with his expertise and together became the most enthusiastic, vibrant, and motivated group one could come across."

"Perfection is a road, not a destination. Every time I live, I get an education."

The Soundtrack and movie "The Perfect Woman," an independent film by Marvel Gima, are now available for distribution. For further information, please visit
