5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful movie, 22 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Water [DVD] (DVD)
Water- Special Edition (2 disc) is a beautiful movie to watch. It should be praised for its creativeness in terms of film making, but in addition the delicate issues it addresses.

The movie is set in the backdrop of the British Raj period. Religious rituals are performed within the confinements of the location. The story is about a young and innocent girl who is cruelly orphaned at such a young age to a widow village. She meet and develops a close and special bonding with this beautiful widow. This widow played by Lisa Ray who falls to the charm of Gandhi follower played by Bollywood heart throb (John Abraham). That is the general gist of the story.

The initial stages of the film led to major delays, as the original plans to filming of the movie in the Ganges backfired due to widespread religious protest. The alternative location used for filming included Sri-Lanka. The movie deals with a delicate social issues of women being denied freedom and forever confined to a place, which understandably prompted this widespread protest.

Overall, a beautiful movie to appreciate and admire for its creativeness. Waters is a harsh vision about the cruelty of religion inflicted on individuals. Great setting, brilliant acting and creativeness are special qualities to praise the movie highly for.
