From the wince-inducing title onwards, the script is laughably bad, especially when it attempts seriousnes.
Frankly this looks more like Dynasty, with some very broad, soapy acting, coy sex scenes and some airily conspicuous wealth.
Buildings and their interiors fare a lot better in this sumptuously lensed and set-designed film. That's because they don't have to talk or act.
Plugging the same two actresses into different Sapphic scenarios may be a valid filmmaking strategy but it can be an extremely boring one.
Hw do they tell their boyfriends and parents that they're gay? Conventionally, that's how.
In exploring the eternal conflict between love and duty in a fresh, provocative way, Sarif demonstrates that she is a filmmaker of exceptional promise.
The writing and direction is often clumsy and there are wobbly performances... but Ray and Sheth have engaging screen presences and real chemistry.
If the plot is cheese, it never rises above the level of a Dairylea triangle
She is still some way short of making a movie that deserves a ticket-buying audience.
Both films are politically daring as well as what used to be called risque. Neither, I'm afraid, is well directed or acted.
The director struggles to inject much energy or spark into the story. Which is frustrating for a premise with this much potential.
It's such a mish-mash of terrible ideas next to sincere and affecting themes that it never really works and repeatedly sabotages any recommendation.
A fascinating movie that centralizes on the companionship and budding romance between two women. Tala and Leyla are first introduced to each other during a visit, and the two instantly connect. They begin spending more time together, and attraction motivates these two when they decide to take a trip together where the two fall in love. Although Tala is engaged, and will soon marry Hani. Leyla is dating Tala's friend Ali, and hopes to become a writer someday. Despite these differences, Leyla admits her love and Tala is indecisive about what path in life to follow. With the help of loved ones, the two find their way to each other.
Great cast- Lisa Ray, Sheetal Sheth, Antonia Frering, Dalip Tahil, Nina Wadia, Ernest Ignatius, Amber Rose Revah, Siddiqua Akhtar, and Anya Lahiri. Worthy!
Funny, heartwarming and downright sexy. Yes, technically this would probably not entirely deserve 5 stars (the dialogue seemed a bit forced at times, the low budget shone through very occasionally), but I had so much fun, I loved the chemistry between the actresses and this was more than just a romantic comedy. The humour is clever, the romance believable and the characters are lovable and well-rounded. And, to come to my most valid argument: This is hands down the lesbian romantic comedy with the hottest couple. A brief moment where Nala stands on top of a staircase in heels and looks at Leyla prompted spontaneous gasps from the almost exclusively female audience. You will know which moment I mean... Hot, funny, endearing film.
