MEMSAHIB cover image
Played this with older kids who had mixed reactions. They were definitely confused when the time jumps from the 1800s to current time. It generated a lot of conversation afterwards between the kids who, once they got it, were onboard.
Very interesting film that exemplifies live 200 years ago in India. It's a bit confusing when it switches to current time with the same characters in different roles. But, overall, the artistry, the production values, and the presentation are compelling and well worth watching.
A beautiful film spanning two centuries which allows a glimpse into Indian history and traditions. This love story involves an English woman who marries an Indian king in the 1850s. He is too progressive for his peers and is murdered. The wife is accused and disappears. Later, the couple reappear in contemporary India. When they recognize one another, you ask - have they been reincarnated or what was their destiny? Directed by Kruti Majmudar. Actors: Emily Hamilton and Parvin Dabas.
