Well done, great dancing, not stereotypical
12 May 2002 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

Finally, a recent movie about Catholics that isn't bending to the RSS-supported negative stereotype! Perhaps that's because it was made in the south, another place not looked upon too kindly by Hindutvadis. Kajol wants to be a nun, not because of western brainwashing or because she wants to hide from the world (as in yeh zindagi ka safar), but because she feels drawn to God and sees the church's emphasis on social work as something she really wants to have a part in. (Also doesn't want the shackles of marriage.) She looks stunning, as always -- she outshines her cousin (Rani) everywhere she goes. She is loved first by Thomas (Aravindsami plus 30 lbs and a whole lot of whitening creams since Bombay 2 years earlier?) and then by Deva (Prabudeva), who was sent by Thomas to woo her in his stead (very Shakespearean). There is a breathtaking semi-salsa dance scene with Kajol and Prabudeva, where he really proves his talent. Kajol, loves the church, is loved by two men who are friends.... which will she choose? You are really kept in suspense until the end!
