Experiencing Interruptions?

Level 13

Rohit, a sycophantic, middle management executive, has recently relocated from Gurgaon to Mumbai as a Vice President of a company. He gets invited to his Managing Director Akash's anniversary party. Eager to win over his new boss and score some brownie points, he takes his wife Priya along and urges her to be at her charming best. Priya on the other hand is anti social in nature, and finds putting up appearance in parties extremely tiresome. Priya as a person, is blunt to the point of being rude and Rohit and his obsequious ways irritate her no end. To escape the humdrumness of her life, Priya often takes refuge in her cell phone and is a gaming addict. However this party turns out to be different for both of them as Rohit runs into Sonal, his boss Akash's wife, who he had once dated.

Is it because somewhere some couples get disillusioned with each other? Where as some couples work hard to keep their interest level alive?

A lot of time and effort has gone into keeping their relationship going and the stress is beginning to tell on them, even though they pretend and try to maintain a hunky-dory facade.
Then at a party, circumstances arise that test their beliefs and push their relationship to the edge.
