Description

A thesis picture. In 1938, Gandhi's party is making inroads in women's rights. Chuyia, a child already married but living with her parents, becomes a widow. By tradition, she is unceremoniously left at a bare and impoverished widows' ashram, beside the Ganges during monsoon season. The ashram's leader pimps out Kalyani, a young and beautiful widow, for household funds. Narayan, a follower of Gandhi, falls in love with her. Can she break with tradition and religious teaching to marry him? The ashram's moral center is Shakuntala, deeply religious but conflicted about her fate. Can she protect Kalyani or Chuyia? Amid all this water, is rebirth possible or does tradition drown all?

Description

The film is set in contemporary Delhi, India, in the household of a joint family which runs a fast-food and video business in the ground floor of their two-story home. The protagonists are the two daughters-in-law, both of whom have joined the family by marriage: Sita (Nandita Das), who is newly wed to the younger son Jatin (Javed Jaffrey); and Radha (Shabana Azmi), who has been married to the elder son Ashok (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) for 15 years. Both couples are unhappy. Jatin, who feels he has been pressured into marriage by the family, neglects Sita and continues to see his Chinese girlfriend. Ashok has chosen to become a tapasvin (an ascetic) after discovering that Radha is infertile, and has been using her to test his resolve in celibacy for 13 years. The two women turn to each other for solace and become lovers. Tipped off by a servant, Ashok discovers them in bed together. Sita leaves, while Radha, who wishes to explain matters to Ashok, promises to meet her outside to start a new life together. In the confrontation that follows, Radha's sari catches fire from the kitchen stove and Ashok abandons her in flames. In the final scene, the two women are reunited.

Description

The year 1947, the city Lahore, in what was then India and what is now Pakistan. Lenny (Maia Sethna), an eight year old Parsi girl is one of the daily visitors to the Queen's Gardens with her comely and shapely nanny Shanta (Nandita Das), with the kind of curves and smiles that draw numerous male admirers. Lenny basks in the warmth of her favorite people. A warm, comfortable world. A world about to be shattered by vicious arguments, rumors and hatred. Angry Hindus storm through Lahore one day, angry Muslims the next. Then the killings begin. From the rooftop of her house Lenny sees Hindus and Sikhs killing Muslims; Muslims burning Hindus and Sikhs alive. Trains arrive with only corpses as passengers. Through this all, she is also privy to the blossoming love affair between the beautiful Shanta and Hasan (Rahul Khanna) the masseur whose is the only voice of sanity in the madness around. And then there is the once charming Ice Candy Man, Dil Nawaz (Aamir Khan) who has a thing for Shanta and who now roams the streets of Lahore with vengeance on his mind. The demonic dance of greed and desire wearing the garb of religion and nationalism, trampling on innocence, the price of making one country into two nations.
