What a charming movie about gypsies!
31 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A wonderful adventure to a world we know little about. Colorful characters fighting insurmountable odds in a changing environment. The music is great and the whole flavor of the film is fascinating. The Maharaja of Jodhpur describes the romantic journey of the gypsies on the Silk Road. Prejudice still abounds and limits their freedom. Many seek to perpetuate their lifestyle in the face of tremendous odds. Playing traditional music, beautiful beyond description, they travel by camel caravans across the deserts. Faced by modernity, the gypsies and their children refuse to give up their traditions. The harsh desert of Rajasthan is the backdrop to their colorful costumes and instruments.
