Trishna (out May 10) is loosely based on Thomas Hardy’s famous novel Tess of the d'Urbervilles and focuses on a young Indian woman from a poor family who is courted by a wealthy man with unclear intentions. There are some beautiful images of India but it’s the muddled storyline that lets the film down. Some of the character's actions are strange indeed. Grade: B-.
