Fresh: Quite possibly the best picture of the year thus far, with no fewer than three of the most luminous female performances I have ever seen onscreen.
- Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Wednesday, July 19, 2006
Fresh: You'll leave the theater with a lot to think about, especially regarding the plight of women around the globe.
- Bill Muller, Arizona Republic, Thursday, May 11, 2006
Heart braking and fascinating look at the terrible life of widows in India.

An important film to see if not all that good, just barely socially conscious and iconoclastic enough to overcome its lack of a coherent story. This is very sensitive filmmaking and the acting (particularly the child actor Sarala) is quite good, but the film is hard to watch due to its incredibly slow pacing. Stick with it, the second half is good (until the cop-out ending which I won't spoil), but there's just not enough there to overcome the excessive "build-up" of the first half. A letdown, overall.
