Review

Laila is a beautiful young woman. Following the patriarchal conventions, she moves to Kashmir to marry a man named Tanvir. Due to political conflicts, every movement in Kashmir is closely monitored by the police and military. In the middle of such situation, her appearance attracts the attention of the entire village, to the extent to which there is a power figure who is strongly determined to conquer her. This film is inspired by the poetry of 14th century Kashmiri mystic Lalleshwari and tells us a story of a brilliant, brave, and a modern young woman overcomes challenges to herself and her family. She does not only know who she is, but also desire to take her fate into her own hands. Beautiful and subliminal Himalayan landscape and seven folk songs about marriage, relocation, temptation, and others also contribute to the beauty of film. [MOON Seok]
