Freida Pinto’s ‘Trishna’ at IIFI

Wed, November 23, 2011 8:00pm IST by

Hollywood-based Indian actor Freida Pinto-starrer Trishna will be screened Friday at the 42nd International Film Festival of Indian in Panaji. Trishna is about a woman whose life is destroyed by a combination of love and circumstances. Freida, along with director Michael Winterbottom, co-producers Anurag Kashyap and Sunil Bohra as well as composer Amit Trivedi, will attend the screening. The story is based on Thomas Hardy’s classic novel Tess of the D’Urbervilles. Set in contemporary Rajasthan, the film has Trishna (Freida) meeting a wealthy young British businessman Jay Singh (Riz Ahmed) who has come to India to work in his father’s hotel business. After an accident destroys her father’s jeep, Trishna goes to work for Jay, and they fall in love. But despite their feelings for each other, they cannot escape the conflicting pressures of a rural society which is changing rapidly through industrialisation, urbanisation and, above all, education. Trishna’s tragedy is that she is torn between the traditions of her family life and the dreams and ambitions that her education has given her. The film had its international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and received rave reviews from critics. The film will have worldwide release in 2012. For the India release, it will be dubbed in eight languages.
