Storyline

Born and raised by her grandparents in Connecticut, Samantha Hartley (Kelli Garner) travels to Rajasthan, India, where her parents, Sara (Lynn Collins) and Jeremy (Justin Theroux) had their honey-moon during the year 1983. At Rajapur Railway Station she is met by Amar (Bhanu Goswami), who takes her to the Desert Hotel, even though she had planned to stay at Niwas Palace. When she insists, he takes her there, and she meets Vikram Singh Rathore (Yusuf Hussain) and his sullen cousin, Jai Singh (Manoj Bajpai), the owner, who makes it clear that she cannot reside there. She looks around, meets Jai's niece, Shefali (Rita Joshi), and is mistaken for a Grants and Proposal Student, Doyle. She decides to assume this name, is allocated a room, and sets about to investigate why her grandmother not only blamed but also filed a lawsuit against Jai for the death of her son.

great cinematography
13 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie in an early screening. It is going to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.

It is set in the desert in India and is the story of two women, Sara Reardon (Lynn Collins) and Samantha Hartley (Kelli Gardner), who visit there 20 years apart. They are both profoundly affected by an Indian man, Jai Singh. There are themes of love, domestic violence, and alcoholism, with a great ending. The town it is set in is close to a thousand years old.

The cinematography in this movie is amazing. It reminds me of a Merchant-Ivory film.

Justin Theroux plays a superb Jeremy Reardon, an amazingly flawed character. The ending is a real surprise. It is the kind of movie that you really want to see twice.

I can't wait to see her next film.
