THE HINDUSTAN TIMES:
New Delhi, India, June 5, 1987. It is
a tale of avarice. The theme is very old,
but Prakash Jha's presentation is refreshingly
Parinati is a simple, yet splendid, work,
It is an art, not stark, film. It has
life, drama, beauty, originality. The
only (big) thing that goes against it
- commercially - is the lack of filmi
PATRIOT: New Delhi, India
1987. Prakash Jha's new feature film 'Parinati'
- (The Inevitable result) is a fascinating
movie that captures not only the stark
beauty of the Rajasthani sand dunes but
also powerfully portrays the inherent
tragedy that always follows an obsessive
greed to acquire wealth at any cost.
The locale .... plus the director's own
expertise and the good performance by
the accomplished leading pair - Vasant
Josalkar and Surekha Sikri of the NSD
- all contributed to make it the strong
cinema that it is.
