Hazaar Chaurasi ki Maa fiftyfiftyme category: Major and Minor
A quietly paced, thoughtful film tracing one woman's journey toward finding her own place in the world as she seeks to find out why her son died. A very female-dominated film, with solid performances from Jaya Bhaduri, my favourite Indian actor/director, Nandita Das and Seema Biswas. Not a breezy, fun film, but with an optimistic tone, despite its serious message. The contrast with fluff like Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya could hardly be greater, but it's definitely worth watching.
