New York Daily News
This is not a film for the impatient. But director Aparna Sen finds the poetry in romantic restraint, which is a mighty rare resource these days.

Not a subtle film; and, most curiously -- to put it mildly -- for a sermon on tolerance, it resorts to history's eternal scapegoat.

New York Post
The central narrative is ultimately too one-dimensional to sustain interest.

Variety
A drama of impeccable intentions flawed by arch dialogue and only OK direction.

Village Voice
The actors appear game, yet director Aparna Sen, who conceived the film in the wake of September 11, resorts often to hokey pseudo-lyricism and prefers sound-bite ballyhoo to sociological depth.
