Zubeidaa

This is a new film by the veteran Shyam Benegal, whose classic ‘Bhumika’ (The Role) was shown at the IFC a few months ago. Zubeidaa is a big-budget epic about a young man’s quest to uncover the life and times of his mother (played by Karisma Kapoor), who has been a mysterious stranger to him. Mixing historical detail and visual spectacle, Benegal attempts once again to paint a complex portrait of an Indian woman as he traces Zubeidaa’s history from her childhood to becoming a mature beauty who marries a Maharaja. Zubeidaa will carry English subtitles
