Critic Reviews for Maya
The photography is gorgeous, though, and with Singh's precise, discreet direction, Maya has a devastating impact.
Striving too hard to make his didactic point, the director arouses skepticism rather than empathy.
Contains such a pile driver gut-punch that it makes Ray's work look like wistful little poems.
Audience Reviews for Maya
I only finished watching this movie to see how it would end. The point of this movie is lost somewhere in the rambling story lines of children running wild, a drunk servant, and lizards on the loose. In the end I am baffled by what the message is supposed to be.
Sick bastards, using religion and a child's first period to rob her of her virginity. Pediphiles in form of priests.
This movies is about a ritual that is illegal on India but it's still done in some parts of the country...a ritual that no girl should go through..really sad.
