Little Box of Sweets Reviews

Derek Malcolm
This is London

If it lacks the power of real drama, or a radical sense of style, it doesn't stint on the difficulties a peasant girl probably still faces when getting on in life.

An enjoyable debut for two disgustingly talented sisters, on the basis of this Meneka and Sheenu Das deserve a long future as that rarest of beasts - a female filmmaking duo.

Meneka Das, a British-based Indian actor, has written and directed a love story that is polite, proper and just a little flat-footed, although beautifully shot in Uttar Pradesh.

Times [UK]

Sugar-coated and naive, Little Box of Sweets is an Indian coming-of-age story that feels firmly mired in the colonial melodrama of the Merchant Ivory era.

Film4

A promising first feature from Das, the low-key Little Box Of Sweets returns to the filmmaker's rural Indian past to offer an atmospheric evocation of a particular time and place.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

It's a dull, if competently made, film, which is done no favours by its earnest tone, a soppy orchestral score and a slew of artificial performances by actors clinging far too tightly to their lines. It would be far better suited to daytime TV.
