I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. The cinematography did it for me more than anything... just so very sensual and exotic, it was a different time, a different climate, a different place. You could almost feel the heat of the jungle or taste the Indian foods through the way it was directed and that attention to detail.

The story is fairly simple and doesn't try to overcomplicate itself. The characters are all memorable and explored well.

I enjoyed it, it felt like I read a good novel or so after it was done.. with all the experience it gave.

Superb photography by Mr. Sivan. He is undoubtedly one of the best cinematographers in Asia.
