At the very moment of her birth, ill-fated Chhaya's mother passes away, her dad loses his job, and their house burns down. She is shunned since then by children her age as well as their parents. Her dad brings her up with a lot of love, and even arranges her marriage with a young man, whose mother, uncle and nephew approve of Chhaya.

The movie was well made, and the subject matter seemed to be covered quite tastefully considering... but this is definitely not a feel good movie ... you get an inside look at child prostitution that is a little too real. The idea that this is going on somewhere in the world right now and I can't do anything to stop it is so devastating to even think about. It's an unfortunate reality that parents have to teach their children about these kinds of dangers... The things you wish your children never had to know about are dangerous for them not to.... what's so disturbing is that this movie really highlights the fact that pedophiles don't look or act a certain way ... they could be anyone .... even someone you know and trust like a judge, or a friendly "neighbour" looking for their pet...

Nothing really happens...its boring, aside from the homage stuff to things like "Barbarella", which can be fun...but not really present enough to make the whole thing worthwhile. It is a shame, because visually the film hits the right notes, both with the sci-fi film within a film, and the look of the main characters' cinema verite style home movies, which look fairly close to the kind of things made in the late 60s.
