The exquisite Indian desert and the village people come alive on the screen and draw you in from the first long shot of this drama about women attempting to escape their plight in a cruel, relentless patriarchy, Their sensual aspirations, feminine solidarity and joy in even small revenge are all vividly expressed, qualifying this as great cinema. The very same themes pervade urban India as well which makes the film topical as well. The screenplay is based on recorded conversations of Indian village women by director Leena Yadav. The enchanting lilt of their dialect comes through loud and clear.
