For 12 year-old Maya, life is very simple in her village in rural India. From innocent pranks to small adventures in the nearby forest, she spends most of her time with her 11 year-old cousin Sanjay. However, their fraternal love will be shattered when Sanjay will fail to save her from an imaginary brutal ritual.Written by
I love to watch documentaries as against pure commercial flicks and so I picked up this movie. Mita Vashisht,Ananth nag and the kids have put in a brilliant performance. The first part of the movie really kept me guessing what the story was all about.I thought it was really generous of the couple to bring up Maya as their own kid.The pranks played by the children did remind me at times of the fun we had as kids.Other than that there was nothing special really. As the story progressed about the girls first period I thought they would show just another ritual performed in some parts of our country. What was shocking was it was more than just a ritual........a brutal rape and child abuse still prevalent in our country, which I thought never existed.In the name of religion people are encouraging the wrong practices.Maya should be an eye opener to the educated section of our society who can create more awareness amongst the superstitious and orthodox community.
