Stunning movie set in the Nilgiris
18 October 2003 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

A stunning movie starring Smita Patil and Gopi. Haunting story about guilt and lust and dignity amongst poverty, set in the Nilgiris. One of the masterpieces of Malayalam and indeed Indian cinema by one of the greatest Indian directors and starring two people (Smita Patil and Gopi) who rank amongst the most sensitive and talented actors that India has produced. Smita Patil delivers one of the best performances of her career. A must see for anyone interested in Indian cinema.
