I have received my latest batch of Indian movies from Desicompany. I borrowed this movie because of the male lead, Fardeen Khan. It was horrible.
I am sorry for the spoiler. Aditya (Fardeen Khan) cheats on his wife with employee, Geeta (Esha Deol) who imagines that he will leave wife for her. He doesn't. They fight. She dies. Then she begins to hunt him. And for almost two hours, i try not to cry as I realise I have just flushed $3.50 down the toilet.
Low budget, D- movie....

I just finished THE BLOOD OF FLOWERS, a sweeping tale set in seventeenth century Iran detailing the life of a young woman with a talent and love for carpet making and the ill fortune of loosing her father and thus the source of dowry to provide her with a marriage.
This is the kind of book that makes me question if indeed, I do possess the talent and skill to make it as a successful writer. The words flowed like melted butter and transported me easily to the very time and place of the narrator's tale. It subtlely blends fiction and myth to provide insight as to what life would have been like and might still be like for a young woman's whose entire existence is dependent upon the protection that alliance with a man can provide; either as a daughter or as a wife.
The book written by Iranian born and American raised Anita Amirrezvani has been shortlisted for the 2008 Orange Prize for Fiction.
