If you are looking for action sequences and songs this is not the film for you. Only one song without an accompanying dance, and some brief dances without songs. Instead, this is more of a philosophical motion picture that makes you think throughout, for a change of pace. And if you don't know much about Buddhism, you will after viewing Trishagni. It is a love story at heart and yet the questions that are posed are just as important. We are given rules to follow in life and yet how can we say that our interpretations of them are always correct. The main characters of Nirvan and Ethi are wonderfully portrayed, as are the two monks who give lessons and at the same time are learning themselves each day. Although set in the past(the costume design is a big plus), the debates that are raised are eternal. The number of films using the desert as a backdrop are few, and each one is always benefited by it. For the ideas put in motion, the location scenery and the acting this movie is well worth watching. Not recommended for families though. Running time on this DVD is six minutes shy of two hours which is short for a film produced in India. The picture quality is fair, and full screen. A remastered edition would of course be preferred. Be warned about reading the plot summary on the DVD back cover and at other websites as they contain spoilers. Lastly, for those who require the optional English subtitles, you will have to be a speed reader at times!
