Storyline

Sapna and Manu enter a new world during the time of unparalleled prosperity and the late 90's American excesses. One arrives with bright eyes destined to be tempted. The other, skeptical, soon to be deceived by a mirage. During their search to make their lives complete, decisions are made which will alter their planned course. Trade Offs is an intriguing and witty tale about the greed and temptation that often accompany dreams and desires. A film shot through a cultural lens, but universal in theme. Trade Offs goes beyond what is obvious to explore the shades of gray. No culture has monopoly on greed and temptation. We all are temptful, greedy and lustful. We all make trade-offs. Don't we?

Wish I saw what everyone else saw.
1 July 2004 | by (Tucson, Az) – See all my reviews

After 20 minutes through the film, I had to stop it, go to the computer, go to IMDB and find out why I bought this dvd. After reading again what everybody said, I decided to see if it would get any better. Trade Offs did get a little better but only because of the great performance of Deypika Singh. Unfortunately she was so good that she made everyone else pale by comparison which was not all that hard to do. The acting was either inconsistent or reminded me of some of the almost laughable stuff that is on late night cable. The story was OK but seemed to be missing something that I could not put my finger on. This film looks and feels low budget. Photography was nothing to write home about and you would hope that the director could have gotten more out of his ensemble unless that is the best he could get. I liked the music which sounds even better on the cd but, at the beginning of the film, the music was so loud that you can barely hear the dialogue and it is not in a night club. Because of all the above, I had to give the film a 5/10 which is one of the lowest scores I have given. Without Deypika Singh, the score would have been a lot lower.
