Storyline

The film is a comment on a society that brands people into images they should be, and talks of individual dreams and aspirations. Set in the background of a small town in India, against the harsh weather conditions and lack of rain, the story revolves around a girl who is unconventional in her ways and appearance, in-feminine in the conventional sense of the word, and therefore subjugated to much negative public opinions and advices on what she should be. She is supported by a supportive just father, a younger brother who is about to turn 18 and a realistic, discouraging but loving older brother. And in their lives then enters a man who believes in magic and tells them that he can bring rain! The story unfolds with much poetry and a dreamlike quality that is magical.

Really nice movie
21 April 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Strongly recommended for a nice weekend evening. Excellent direction, acting and totally new story line. Especially the first part where the whole movie follows a poetic route of dialogue delivery rather than traditional rout. Though the film drags in second part, it is still watchable for its central character, Nana Patekar
