Critic Reviews for The Memsahib

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

The film might succeed as a travelogue were it not for writer-director Majmudar's treacly narration.

January 15, 2010 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, not only Grace, but every major character in Majmudar's script exists to embody an idea rather than a person or personality, each uttering their point of view with an absolute, repetitive conviction that's the death of interesting drama.

Visually beautiful but sleepy.

January 15, 2010 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A drama so undercooked and overbaked that only fans of Harlequin romance novels could possibly clutch it to their heaving bosoms.
