Excellent multi-level story very well-told
9 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Chitra Palekar's very well-narrated story-within-a-story-within-a-story leaves you feeling for the protagonist Chandi played superbly by Nandita Das.

Considering that except for the two lead actors, the others have never appeared on film before, they've done a superb job.

The movie's in the Indian Language Marathi, and the sub-titles don't do it justice, so most people who don't speak the language wouldn't get a lot of the nuances in the story.

For a person knowledgeable about the social contexts of rural life in India, this movie serves to stir many questions.

Time and Money Well spent!
