Review: Some interesting colors and the blend of images is well handled, but it feels incomplete and a bit meager.

Review: There aren’t enough Indian films about homosexuality and this one feels both forward-thinking and a bit homophobic in some ways. That said, if Deepa Mehta can make something as acclaimed as Water, I don’t see why this couldn’t exceed expectations.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
