Critic Reviews

  1. 60
    Sumptuous historical melodrama.

    A draggy affair livened occasionally by bursts of color or raw emotion, but just as often convoluted and hackneyed. It's a case of a film taking on, admirably, more than it can chew.
  3. 50
    Unfortunately the allegory tends to overpower the characterizations even as it deepens them.
  4. 40
    Mehta feels compelled to twist the screw, shamelessly plying her audience with mawkish tropes wearing the garb of "innocence."
