Excellent Movie - very unusual drama
11 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie several times - I love watching movies which are realistic / life like and are different / not routine Bollywood dramas. This one scores the most in my opinion.

Rakhee is beautiful and has performed superbly as Paroma. Her innocence as a housewife is characteristics of many women in real life. She represents many housewives in Indian society for whom the family constitutes the entire world and they are content and happy in that role. It is very rare that some stranger will come and disturb this harmony - but in this case Rakhee's beauty attracts a young photographer and her life changes drastically. They fall in love and also have sex affair. This is unusual but may be happening more than we know - mostly underground affairs are not brought out in light.

The movie also sheds light on the double standards existing in society where women are held to higher standard of morality. Her husband had affairs himself but still could not tolerate his wife having an affair. Such is fact of life - the movie captures these kind of facts beautifully.

Superb direction....Great job by all
