Before the Rains
Linus Roache, Rahul Bose, Nandita Das, Jennifer Ehle, John Standing / Fiction / English, Malayalam
A sweeping, sad-eyed romance, set in colonial India.
At the tail end of the Raj, spice grower Henry Moores (Linus Roache) is engaged in a dangerous love affair with his housemaid Sanjani (Nandita Das). As gossip gathers and the story threatens to reach the pair’s respective spouses, Henry begins to grasp desperately for a way to save himself. In the lush tradition of Merchant Ivory, this is a seductive moral maze, solidly helmed by the director of The Terrorist and Asoka.
