Storyline

Based on Thomas Hardy's classic novel Tess of the D'Urbervilles, 'Trishna' tells the story of one woman whose life is destroyed by a combination of love and circumstances. Set in contemporary Rajasthan, Trishna (Freida Pinto) meets a wealthy young British businessman Jay Singh (Riz Ahmed) who has come to India to work in his father's hotel business. After an accident destroys her father's Jeep, Trishna goes to work for Jay, and they fall in love. But despite their feelings for each other, they cannot escape the conflicting pressures of a rural society which is changing rapidly through industrialisation, urbanisation and, above all, education. Trishna's tragedy is that she is torn between the traditions of her family life and the dreams and ambitions that her education has given her. Written by Revolution Films

what a brilliant insight into the real India.
14 August 2012 | by rajsingharoraSee all my reviews

i am from India.....n believe me the first 30 min of this film is the most authentic vision of small small town/villages India you will see on film......i mean even i being an Indian cannot go into that psyche....well maybe because i am just way too urban.....but hats off to the director what an acute observation of the country so very real n authentically shot.......high praise....and its a real good film.....pretty existential from the central characters point of view.....n yes his vision of mumbai again spot on its how it is to a very large extent the way you see it in this film....well made mediative piece of filmaking......have not read the book so cant compare it in that regard....and yes defiantly the only good acting frida pinto has done in a really long time.
