One has to be prepared for the fact that it's very slow. It takes its time getting to where it's going and it's very meditative and ruminative... But it's a terrific movie.

What I love about this is how it captures the rhythms of daily life.

The final four minutes turn what was already a fine picture into an unforgettable one, affirming Morchhale's status as one of the most exciting figures of the Indian new wave.

July 10, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The sort of issue-driven art-house film that masks a plodding obviousness of intent beneath a thick varnish of righteousness and attractive visuals.

July 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Power, and its absence, shape the conflict-hardened heart of "Widow of Silence," a serenely beautiful tragedy about women and war.

July 9, 2020 | Full Review…

It packs an unsettling message of empowerment very rare in the social injustice genre.
