Shankutala Smriti Jal

2.67  ·  Rating Details ·  3 Ratings  ·  1 Review
On the ghats of Kashi, a sightless priest directs a young woman to come to terms with an earlier life that binds her in the eternal cycle of death & rebirth. In the life she recalls, she was Shakuntala - spirited, imaginative & adventurous, but destined, like her legendary namesake, to suffer 'the samskaras of abandonment'.

This is not a real review, but I was excited to read a retelling of Indian myths rather than western myths for a change, but this was disappointing and missed the point of really pulling out the themes of the original myth by failing to really comment on them.
