Chicagoan Ligy J. Pullappally wrote and directed this earnest 2004 tale of forbidden love set in India, in which two childhood friends, Kiran (Suhasini Nair) and Delilah (Shrruiti Menon), daughters of wealthy neighboring families, find their idyllic lives shaken as their friendship turns into romantic love. Cultural and religious taboos against lesbianism force the girls to hide their relationship, until they’re discovered by a nosy, love-struck male classmate. Melodrama occasionally threatens to bury the film in cheese, but the intense emotional relationship between the girls is honest and affecting, thanks in part to fine performances from the two leads. In Malayalam with subtitles.
