Trishna Reviews

Page 1 of 5
Jonathan Lack
We Got This Covered

Trishna is an admirable effort, but it's too detached and disinterested in the viewer to make an impact. This is a tough film to get through, and even if one makes it to the end, there's little reward to be found.

Unfocused and easily forgettable, this drama shows that even a likable actress can't carry a movie that undervalues its characters.

Hit the books instead.

The film's final silliness casts a pall over all of its previous successes.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

Things start off promising, but, by the time the final reel rolls, Winterbottom's too-detached style seems to be willfully wallowing in oversimplified misery.

The Sun Herald

Despite some typical visual flair, and an affecting soundtrack to boot, Trishna lacks the emotional punch of Hardy's novel, with Pinto and Ahmed's pairing feeling contrived.

By combining the characters of Lord d'Urberville and Angel Clare into one person -- spoiled rich boy Jay (Riz Ahmed, Four Lions) -- Winterbottom strips the tale of a compelling second act, making things sag terribly in the middle.

Slant Magazine

Class privilege and sexual politics are inextricably linked in Michael Winterbottom's blunt, self-consciously brutal, and rather loose updating of Thomas Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles.

Freida Pinto is a goddess among us, but this set-in-India version of Tess of the D'Ubervilles is just so-so.

Little White Lies

Where Winterbottom takes us next is anyone's guess. We're slowly losing interest, though.

March 8, 2012

Rather than a strong script, Winterbottom relies on a hyperactive camera, as if he were trying to recreate an updated dramatic classic by way of a music video.

Freida Pinto is so incredibly pretty in "Trishna." And so incredibly boring.

It feels contrived, even if that's not how the book reads

Life is suffering, as the Buddha said (including in Hardy's emotionally grinding novels), but it's more complex and contradictory than the ginned-up realism Mr. Winterbottom delivers here.

A dry, inert, frustrating, and boring experience, more detours than drama.

Pinto's lack of dramatic range (she basically has two expressions) and an awkward third act do not provide a solid foundation for Hardy's tragic ending.

"Trishna" should move the soul and engage the tear-ducts, yet it passes by as distant as it is lovely. And the blame must fall on the movie's star, Freida Pinto.

Winterbottom has complete control of the film's look and feel, but the story seems to run away from him.

This escalation of passions and Trishna's humiliation demands much of both actors, yet neither Pinto nor Ahmed is completely convincing and this is the main flaw of Trishna.
