The film examines the plight of a group of widows forced into poverty at a temple in the holy city of Varanasi. It focuses on a relationship between one of the widows, who wants to escape the social restrictions imposed on widows, and a man who is from the highest caste and a follower of Mahatma Gandhi.
At the suggestion of a friend of mine, I was encouraged to watch this new show that might turn into a TV series called, Hotel Babylon. The premise is that of some land immigrants who work at a hotel and how they deal with daily occurrences and personality clashes. So, I sat down, taped the show and after it was over came to my own conclusion: it wasn't that bad. I'll admit, it started off slow in the beginning but picked up some speed before the end. One thing stood out though: the characters were strong, especially that of Awaovieyi Agie, portraying a Maintainence Man who was a cop in his native land. I hope to see more of his performances in the future, whether or not this show becomes a series.
