  • The attractive actors are easy to watch, though their silent, enigmatic performances deliberately withhold information from the viewer until the end. Without social interaction of any kind, they remain abstract, symbolic figures.

  • Evocative images are meant to make it poetic, yet watching water evaporate in a hot pan really doesn't add much.

  • A lovely and warm little tale, "Labour of Love" is a unique film for India: a complete opposite of the bombast of Bollywood. It's a fresh aesthetic and approach for Indian cinema, but it's also a specifically Indian film.

  • On paper it would seem difficult to pull off a film like Asha Jaoar Majhe that rests on banal daily rhythms, but Sengupta fashions a lovely tale of love in times of recession.

  • The film works well in terms of its visual and its immersive sound design, but not so much as a story about real people.

  • It shows, rather convincingly at that, how drama and detailing can keep the audience glued to seats even if none of the actors mouth a single word.
