Storyline

The film is a comment on a society that brands people into images they should be, and talks of individual dreams and aspirations. Set in the background of a small town in India, against the harsh weather conditions and lack of rain, the story revolves around a girl who is unconventional in her ways and appearance, in-feminine in the conventional sense of the word, and therefore subjugated to much negative public opinions and advices on what she should be. She is supported by a supportive just father, a younger brother who is about to turn 18 and a realistic, discouraging but loving older brother. And in their lives then enters a man who believes in magic and tells them that he can bring rain! The story unfolds with much poetry and a dreamlike quality that is magical.

Good retake on 'The Rainmaker'
24 March 2005 | by neo_papilonSee all my reviews

Mr. Palekar has created a thoroughly watchable Hindi version of the 1956 movie 'The Rainmaker', starring Burt Lancaster and Katherine Hepburn. Nana Patekar has put in another commendable performance, as has Anita Kanwar.

I felt one or two sequences were a bit too lengthy, and maybe the movie could have been completed within 2 hours.. but It's okay. Definitely watch the movie if you like a little unconventional romanticism.

If you like watching this movie, I can also suggest watching English movies like 'The Bridges of Madison County', 'Sweet November', 'Notting Hill'.. and Hindi movies like 'Ijazat' and 'Manzil'.
