Hugh Grant stars as a British engineer who becomes entangled in a forbidden romance with his Indian employer's eldest daughter. As their passion ignites, the East-meets-West clash of cultures leads to surprising and tragic consequences. Based on a true story, the film beautifully captures the magic and mystery of India. The accomplished cast includes John Hurt and Shabana Azmi, one of India's greatest film stars. Written by
Allan (Hugh Grant in the beginning of his career) is an English engineer of about twenty-six years old expatriated in India who builds bridges and roads. One day, he got ill and his boss invites him to stay in his huge home with his family (his wife and his two daughters). There, Allan will fall in love with the older daughter Gayatri (Supriya Patrak). However, the abyss between European and Indian cultures and the lack of comprehension and misunderstanding of the Indian culture by Allan will lead the lovers and the Indian family to a tragic end. The story does not situate the viewer in an exact period of the Twentieth Century (maybe in the 50's), but the romance is wonderful and exotic and supported by a great cast. The character of John Hurt has a small participation in the plot, but with a great and intense acting. The actresses who played the mother Indira Sen (Shabana Azmi) and Gayatri (Supriya Patrak) are of an incredible beauty. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "As Noites de Bengali" ("The Nights of Bengalli")
