A story based in Benaras about four lives that intersect along the Ganga. A lower-caste boy in a hopeless love, a daughter torn with guilt, a father sinking in greed and a spirited kid craving for a family, each one is yearning to escape the constrictions of a small town.

I'm surprised to say so but it was a truly enjoyable, interesting to follow, complex and compelling story. Takes you from "wait, what did just happen" to "poor guys, hope they're gonna make it", to "omg how cute is that and how adorable is he", again to "what did just happen" and all sorts of other feelings. Another strange thing I enjoyed was the music... in the Indian movie... Go watch!
