Ths film is a bit predictable, but manages to remain enjoyable because of the rich scenery, well-developed characters¬†and cultural insights. Set in India in the late 1930’s a British tea and spice merchant’s affair with a popular local village woman, Sajani,¬†leads to a series of events. The period is classic ‘Merchant & Ivory,’ the drama is intense.
