Despite a very good performance by Tannishtha Chatterjee (Brick Lane) 'Bombay Summer' never really seems to get going. Inconsequential and dramatically weak story that in the end defeats the good intentions.
Beautiful film. Restrained rich cinematography, heartfelt performances and a universal story. If you're in the mood for slumdogs and millionaires or gritty portrayals of the underbelly of India, this may not be for you. But truthfully, you're the one missing out. Congrats Joseph and your cast and crew. Watch it!
Worth watching if only to get a glimpse of Mubai's tapestry, but doesn't it disappoint when it comes to bollywood. One of the lead characters has to die tragically in the end It is a template, insead of comfronting the predicament of love accross class divide,and explore the dilema, you sacrifice the underdog and keep the social order intact.
