Don't expect the usual Merchant-Ivory quality! 20 Feb 2006
By jeffsdate - Published on
Format: DVD
This movie has a low-budget, homemade feel to it. I guess it was one of their very first films. It's in black and white and the sound quality is so poor that sometimes it's difficult to understand what the characters are saying. The Indian background music is often shrill and jarring, like fingernails on a blackboard. Also, the acting seemed pretty amateurish to me. The story is quite slow, too, and for me it dragged a bit. I would say this is only for the SERIOUS Merchant-Ivory scholar!

The Perfect Working Team 5 July 2007
By Maria Cristina - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The Ivory-Merchant-Jhabvala team established a particular style in their film productions. This film and HEAT AND DUST are even more special because they are based on novels written by Jhabvala herself.

Old gold. 16 July 2014
By Vinod K Puri - Published on
Format: DVD
This old classic is a nostalgic tour de force for movie buffs. Having first seen it when it came out in 1962, I wanted to own the DVD. Shashi Kapoor appears vulnerable yet endearing youth. Leela Naidu's understated beauty in this black and white movie is something to behold. Merchant and Ivory were introduced to millions of movie goers by this movie to Ruth Prawar Jhabwala's fiction.
Enjoyed it again after many decades.
