Beautifully crafted musical
This 1970s Indian musical tells the story of the life and times of Sita and Rama and their time on earth together in a human incarnation. Rama returns to earth to defeat an evil demon and Sita follows him, immolating herself in fire and vowing revenge against a monster who tried to defile her. Beautifully crafted, with wonderful devotional songs, (the mantra is bone haunting) this film manages to capture the essence of the Hindu philosophy of life, struggle, rebirth and death. The special effects are basic to say the least, in fact by western standards they are laughable, but in the end this is a musical about devotion and love, so the any special effects are a bonus not a necessity. A wonderful film.
