Vidya Bagchi (Vidya Balan) arrives in Kolkata from London to find her missing husband Arnab Bagchi. Seven months pregnant and alone in a festive city, she begins a relentless search for her husband. With nothing to rely on except fragments from her memories about him, all clues seem to reach a dead end when everyone tries to convince Vidya that her husband does not exist. She slowly realises that nothing is what it seems. In a city soaked in lies, Vidya is determined to unravel the truth about her husband - for herself and her unborn child - even at the cost of her own life.

Jovidst, den havde da et par fede jeblikke, men dette var en B-film, og desvrre med alle de irriterende ting der, kan, hre med til B-film. Drligt kamera. Utrovrdige skuespillere, og generelt bare et kmpe clusterfuck... Kinda. Undg den med mindre du ikke har andet at lave.
Charles H (ca) wrote: Watching this film made me quite uncomfortable, but that was obviously the film's point. This movie provides a very bleak view, centered around domestic dysfunction. Holly Hunter is great as usual, but it is Evan Rachel Wood, playing her daughter, who makes this film a resounding success with her anguished performance as a destructive teen on the brink. Might be especially frightening for expectant parents or those with young children, but it also can be viewed beneficially as a reminder of various pit-falls that exist in our world.

Paul J (mx) wrote: The film that put Yimou and Gong Li in the public's eye. A powerful indictment on the treatment of women. It's a visually immaculate film with incredible performances. The sounds are equally essential - the flute (representing the freedom that she could never have), the foot massage, the opera singing, all of which haunt the film. It deals with sexual enslavement, in fact, it's all about sexual politics. The mansion is like a prison compound - the camerawork like a straight-jacket. The film was banned in China, perhaps because the subtext - the customs of the house are like the laws of the government. It can easily be interpreted as an attack on the political system. It's also brilliant how the Master of the house is always visually obscured. It would have been too easy to have him be the mean antagonist. But it's the customs, rules and tradition that are the main problems. Interestingly, Hou Hsiao-hsien produced the film. Ultimately, it's true tragedy. Having a character be a victim is one thing but having them assist in the dark and cynical system is tragedy at its harshest.

Fred M (gb) wrote: El resentimiento por las malas experiencias le han impreso en el rostro una expresin de vulnerabilidad, que la confusin hace virar a una rabia contenida que no sabe canalizar. La mujer con la que se hizo ilusiones lo convoca porque no le queda de otra, tiene que poner en sus manos una responsabilidad compartida de la que sin embargo no piensa hacerse cargo ella. En el calor de la estufa ve su vocacin frustrada, una vida posible que lo hubiera llevado a conocer a la mujer que idealiza, que no es la perra que lo utiliza ni la vecina de enfrente que est fuera de su alcance. El mundo es desolado, su mente un planeta cavernoso e infranqueable que lo gobierna un enfermo que no es su amigo. En una genial secuencia de pesadillas se convierte a plenitud en el monstruo de sus responsabilidades. No hay lugar para su cabeza, que se le revela como materia prima ideal para fabricar borradores: un instrumento del olvido, que busca eliminar una realidad hacia la cual se siente alienado. 9/10: Fascinante.
