Cast: Tillotama Shome

This smart romantic drama from Rohena Gera has young widow Ratna (Tillotama Shome), who dreams of a career in fashion, moving from her village to Mumbai to take on the job of maid and servant to Ashwin (Vivek Gomber), the scion of a wealthy family. Ashwin was supposed to have been married just prior to Ratna’s arrival, but something went seriously amiss and the marriage was called off. So, in effect, the couple are living together—and Ratna’s sensible, no-nonsense ways soon strike a spark in the handsome bachelor, a man used to dealing with the rich socialites foisted upon him by his family… Will problems of class and caste—and patriarchal traditions that refuse to die—threaten the young couple’s burgeoning romance?

‘Screenwriter and documentary director Rohena Gera makes her fiction feature debut with this thoughtful and heartfelt [film]… This is, in many ways, a classical domestic drama about character, situation and social class. There are many pleasingly subtle touches… [Overall, this is a] delicately observed and attractive drama with some great Mumbai cityscapes and an excellent performance from Shome.’—Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
