The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

This In­dian ro­mance spans 60 years of an un­ful­filled re­la­tion­ship be­tween Ravi (Prashant Narayanan) and the ap­ple of his eye, Masha (Tan­nishtha Chat­ter­jee), who first meet as child work­ers in a car­pet fac­tory. In his first act of love, Ravi sac­ri­fices his sav­ings to buy Masha’s freedom, but from then on their at­tempts to re­unite are thwarted through a se­ries of un­for­tu­nate events. The story weaves through pre-in­de­pen­dence In­dia, darkly por­trayed as a coun­try rife with cor­rup­tion and ex­ploita­tion and only the vi­brant per­for­mances from the leads man­age to shine through this bleak pic­ture. ★★★
