Movie Info

Sita (Nandita Das) and Radha (Shabana Azmi) are two Indian women stuck in loveless marriages. While Sita is trapped in an arranged relationship with her cruel and unfaithful husband, Jatin (Jaaved Jaafei), Radha is married to his brother, Ashok (Kulbhushan Kharbanda), a religious zealot who believes in suppressing desire. As the two women recognize their similar situations, they grow closer, and their relationship becomes far more involved than either of them could have anticipated.

    The ultimate Mehta for me was the end of the trilogy Water but this was a fine start. Parallels to the later Jihad for Love as lesbianism takes hld in a traditional environment.

    This is a favorite of mine. I love the plot and admire the characters for their bravery. This film is definitely a remarkable insight into the lives of two beautiful women. A great film!
