Storyline

The film is set in the India of the tumultuous 1930's when nationalists fighting for the country's independence rose up as one, urging the British to quit. At this time, a young Indian, Kisna befriends and then shields a British girl Katherine, from an enraged mob of nationalists including Kisna's own uncle and brother. Katherine is the young daughter of a ruthless British collector. Kisna takes it upon himself to escort Katherine to the safety of the British High Commission in New Delhi, who will arrange for her to board a ship home. A tender attraction develops between Kisna and Katherine during the journey, a love story that is torn between 'Karma' (the noble deed) and 'Dharma' (the duty). Laxmi, the Indian girl Kisna is engaged to, forms the third point in an emotional triangle involving the Indo-British romantic pair. Written by Anwar

This movie isn't THAT bad...
23 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When we have an Industry in India (bollywood) that produces a handful of useless commercial masala films every year(with only a few being entertaining), here comes something different...There are no actors going around dancing without a shirt on. No wet saree dance and no cliché bollywood junk...Yes, there is song and dance but the story actually has some meaning to it and you need brains to understand something like that. Yes, there are loose ends and plot-holes and that is why I wouldn't call this an EXCELLENT and FANTASTIC film. I respect the director for at least attempting to do something different rather than booking a flight to New Zealand and having a bunch of ladies dancing around in bikinis....Just look at the overall grandeur of this film...The cinematography, the music, the dance sequences, the sets and the theme..All these things are quite impressive..If you know anything about film-making then you would understand.Yes it gets a bit too much at the later portions of the film, but still...I wouldn't call this movie bad when compared to the other films that bollywood produces...
