  1. This is not a film for the impatient. But director Aparna Sen finds the poetry in romantic restraint, which is a mighty rare resource these days.
  2. Not a subtle film; and, most curiously -- to put it mildly -- for a sermon on tolerance, it resorts to history's eternal scapegoat.

    The central narrative is ultimately too one-dimensional to sustain interest.

    A drama of impeccable intentions flawed by arch dialogue and only OK direction.
  5. Reviewed by: Joe McGovern

    The actors appear game, yet director Aparna Sen, who conceived the film in the wake of September 11, resorts often to hokey pseudo-lyricism and prefers sound-bite ballyhoo to sociological depth.

    Simply fantastic movie! Absolutely matured acting by both Rahul Bose and Konkona Sen-Sharma!
