Storyline

Chidambaram-based Lakshmi gets married to Prithvi and re-locates to live with him in San Francisco, U.S.A.. Even though he is employed, he makes time for her and they soon become parents of a girl, Divya. Not willing to entrust her to strangers for Day Care nor baby-sitting, she undertakes to look Divya on her own, while Prithvi opens his own business and begins to neglect her. When Divya starts attending high school and befriending males, Lakshmi objects, leading to the former moving out, with Prithvi blaming his wife for these turn of events. It will not be too long before Divya finds out that her mother may be having an affair with their neighbor, Steve; while Lakshmi suspects Prithvi is involved with his employee, Pam.

30 September 2002 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

'Mitr' attempts to portray the conflicts experienced by a traditional Indian mother living in the USA. She devotes her life to her family while her teenage daughter and ambitious husband grow increasingly independent.

Far from being a Bollywood production, I felt Mitr is closer to being a a high-school drama caught on film, based on its production quality. The lighting was flat and strange (candlelight dinner on a sunny afternoon?). Every line of dialogue was forced and overdone (clearly the director's decision). The audio was plagued by echo (too distant microphones?). The soundtrack was nonstop georgewinston-ey, with cricket chirps dubbed into the nighttime scenes. Mitr boasts "an all female crew," but the the quality of their work does not reflect well on female professionals in the film industry.

Mitr is partly redeemed by its strong character development, but it's poor production quality is so distracting that I did not enjoy watching it.
