In a village circa the British rule in India, lives a young school-going male named Amal, who is shortly to get married to a girl named Rajni. The traditional ritual-filled marriage takes place, the young couple are then left alone for a few days, and this is where the two develop their love and friendship. Then Rajni must return to her parents' house, while Amal continues with his studies in school, and at home with Masterji, an elderly teacher. His life is enlivened occasionally when Rajni is permitted to visit. Rajni next visit is scheduled for Durga Pooja, but she does not come, instead she comes at Vijay Dashami, to stay there for a couple nights, before going on a Tirth Yatra with her family, where they are scheduled to visit all the holy places in India namely, Benaras, Gaya, Mathura, Vrindavan, Hardwar, Nasik, Hrishikesh, Dwarka, Rameshwaram, Kamakshya, Puri, and Konarak.

Could have done without the voice-over, but it is not overbearing. The cold, drab environment matches the tone and mood of the characters very well. Benjamin Bratt's was definitely underused in this film. Even with such a meek main character, I was rooting for him to find some sort of happiness, though I felt the ending was a little rushed and messy, so the ending isn't wholly satisfying, but it's done in a way that's very much like real life.

But seriously, it wasn't a bad premise, and the group of "hunters" is entertaining although I find it kind of odd that Ben Kingsley who is supposedly in charge of the entire operation initially seems to have no clue about what is going on.. odd for the person who supposedly set off the whole process. Still a good sci-fi/horror chase movie when you think about it probably cheapened by the topless Henstridge but hey, this movie was ahead of it's time, sex sells!
