Must see, Masterful, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you are a Helen Mirren fan, if you are an Anglophile, if you want to be totally wowed and absorbed by this brilliant actress's portrayal.

Don't see it if you are not a fan of the English monarchy...or Helen Mirren

"Rawal may not make the nuances entirely clear, but the emotional stakes of Durga and Amar’s debate are always palpable. Bose and Tewari have a compelling, sparky chemistry…A sense of time proves more elusive: Rawai’s dialogue flits between the poetic and contemporary...The play perhaps could have stood for more time to build to the supposedly explosive family argument that fell a touch flat…But the questions that the play raises as a whole are timely and interesting."
