FULL SYNOPSIS

In lieu of a by-the-numbers Bollywood film, this Indian-produced effort from director Meneka Das represents a throwback to the arthouse-style films of Satyajit Ray and Bimal Roy. The tale unfurls in the 1970s, where Seth (Joe Anderson), the racially-mixed son of a Caucasian mother and Indian commissioner father, returns to India from school in Britain and experiences a joyous reunion with Asha (Meneka Das) a friend from childhood. Asha, as it turns out, was orphaned as a young girl, and happens to attend an all-girls' school where one of her teachers is Sheila (Helena Michell), Seth's mother. Over a short period of time, Seth and Asha's relationship blossoms from a renewed friendship into full romance, which draws the ire of both of Seth's parents and prompts them to interfere - thus setting the stage for tragedy. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
