The Bengali Night
A British engineer and a young Bengali woman feel the backlash of cultural divisiveness in this uneven romantic drama. Allan (Hugh Grant) falls in love with the Gayatri (Supriya Pathak), the beautiful teenage daughter of his hostess Indira Sen (Shabana Azmi) while he recovers from an illness. When the family learns of the affair, Allan is kicked out of the house and returns to a Calcutta boarding house a heartbroken man. Lucien Metz (John Hurt) is a photojournalist working for Life magazine who convinces his old friend Allan that his stay in India can only bring him further trouble and continued bad fortune. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
