This is a stunningly shot film with a story to really make you sit up and think. As a widow myself, living in Europe, it made me realise how behind the times India is and the cruelty to which the recently bereaved are subjected there. Luckily a happy ending is reached. The cinematography is wonderful, the sights and smells of India are beautifully captured in this brilliant film.

Watched this as recommended by another reviewer in the Hindi version with English subtitles - I imagine the dubbed version would have been very annoying! Absolutely beautiful film with the young star a great little actress. Interestingly set in the 30s in India at the time that Ghandi's influence was starting to instigate real change and inspiring people.

I honestly tried to watch this film to the end, but I turned it off after about 30-40 minutes. I was not captivated by the story or the acting, and the fact that it was dubbed into English (not very well), did not help. It would have perhaps benefitted with subtitling rather than dubbing?? Move on and look at amother film!

Interesting story set in a more conservative India at a time of British rule and confusion over national identity. Also, beautifully shot with really endearing characters. I see complaints about dubbing...watch the Hindi version with subtitles, not the English version.

Lovely filming, good acting, sad story depicting the problems of Indian widows. Bit of a cheesy ending but otherwise quite an absorbing film. As others have said, choose the Urdu version of the film with subtitles, it's better then the dubbing.
