I agree with another comment about Sonali Bendre giving a terrific performance and she was ably supported by the head maid played by Deepli Naval. I was not equally impressed by some of the men who gave somewhat stilted performances. The king annoyed the daylights out of me.
Back to the story, though. At times, I felt that the Viagra plug would come at any moment and it was sooooooo slow and talky and this was a relatively short Indian film that could have been trimmed even more. Everything was repetitive - the dialog, scenes, and music. At times, it reminded me of some of the scenes from Wagner's Ring Cycle. I like most Indian music but Indian Classical Music is pretty much hit or miss for me and I feel that it's use in this film will irritate people not used to it. I wish they would have varied it a little more and had some additional instrumentation.
The last twenty to thirty minutes of Eternity (does the title have anything to do with taking an Eternity to get anywhere?)almost makes up for the first hour or so, especially some of the great dialog between the women and one line in particular. Photography, sets, sound, and costumes were all flawless. It would have been nice to have a song or two in the background, especially as the queen is leaving the palace.
