Out of many movies made on the theme of lesbianism, this stands out as one of the best..
It compels the viewers to think what after all is so very wrong with lesbianism,, what is so unpardonable in companionship and romantic relation between two grown up ladies.. Isn't physical contact between a male and a female about mutual satisfaction and procreation.. The present day society does not look with cynicism the capable couples who choose adaption to procreation .. In fact the society now encourages it and praises it..
The issue of course may not be so simple.. The importance of social and religious values have to be respected.. But love, as everybody agrees, is much more than sex..
The more famed Lisa Ray as Tala is definitely gorgeous.. But Sheetal Seth as Leyla is much more impressive .. Acting by both is good.. Intimate scenes by the ladies are well filmed and not overdone .. The emotional scenes are great.. the religious issues can hardly be handled properly, in a limited movie that is mainly meant to emphasize the relevance of woman-woman relation.. Photography is good.. Dialogues could have been better..
A must see for all people who either advocate or resent such relation..
