But when the scandal sweeps the town and the girl's secret is discovered, Delilah's mortified mother confronts her and demands that the relationship ends. Worse still, to save her reputation and the family name, an arranged marriage is planned.
A sensual and beautiful tale of forbidden love, The Journey (Sancharram), was the winner of the Best Film at the 40th Chicago International Film Festival and tells a story of sexual taboos in a traditional community.

This is culturally very disturbing territory for me as I don't understand unwilling marriage nor condone homophobia. However, the story was simple, and elegantly told with wonderful flashes of tolerance from the grandmother character.
A credible story, well-cast and visually satisfying.
It's a beautiful film, and it really hasn't aged, but I am looking forward to seeing the remastered version on this release.
Certainly worth a watch, if anything, to explore the taboos in society but really there is so much more to explore in this film.

A timeless tale about two souls that awaken to love but have the misfortune of being of the same gender in a country and culture hostile to such "unnatural feelings." Kiran (Susahini V. Nair) and Delilah (Sharauiti Menon) are two naturally beautiful, exotic young women with the most expressive, enchanting faces ever captured on film. They are absolutely magical together.
My favorite sequence in the film is Kiran's mystical dream of Delilah dancing in a darkened room. Like Kali in her most compassionate and desirable form Delilah flashes in and out of the shadows as the drum beat intensifies. Delilahs' movements combined with the music and her transfixed facial expression is mesmerizing. Upon awakening in a cold sweat Kiran is now fully aware that her affection for Delilah is more that just friendship.
In contrast to such interior dream images, the cinematography of the mundane world surrounding the two lovers is bright, vibrant and textured. The sight of these two exotic and graceful native beauties moving hand and hand across the lush, tropical Indian landscape is a wonder to behold. Complimented by an equally impressive soundtrack you will soon find yourself lost within the story and terrain. Whether you're sympathetic to the subject matter or not, the pure, deep felt emotion Kiran and Delilah share for each other will touch your soul and transcend any personal judgement on the subject.
Beautiful, Poetic, Sensitive and unexpectedly Mystical, get ready to enjoy a nearly flawless production!
My Highest Recommendation!!
look into the conflicts of love and cultural tradition, and a simply touching tale of two people falling in love, "The Journey" is a most-enjoyable watch.
Kiran and Delilah are both stunning young women approaching the end of high school. While their parents are busy thinking about arranging the girls' marriages, and the local boys are concentrating on finding their wives, Kiran and Delilah embark on their own path toward toward love and happiness.....with
each other. Finding conflict with not only their families and village, the girls are forced to deal with a love that they have always thought sinful.
Provocative and sensitive, political and beautiful, "The Journey" joins a small group of films that bring queer love into a traditional eastern story.
Lesbians or lesbian well-wishers might find the plot of 'Sanchaaram' somewhat of a letdown, but the director's vision is firmly realist. It is unlikely that lebian women can enjoy full sexual freedom in Kerala, like they do in places like, say, Toronto. Kerala society, while overall traditionally matrilineal and forward-thinking with regard to women's status and position, nonetheless remains deeply unaccommodating of subversive sexual mores and sticks by its own spins of heterosexism and patriarchy. In this sense, the movie's plot makes sense, but that may still not please our need to find feminist heroines in our art. Be that as it may, 'Sancharam' is an audacious experiment for India in real cinema - and is a refreshing addition to Malayalam art in general.
