Heaven on Earth(2008) -Review

Honest and Powerful film

Heaven on Earth is a powerful film directed by Deepa Mehta.The plot is about chand ,a punjabi woman, who is married, leaves northern India, to live with her husband who she is meeting for the first time as well as her in laws.Its not defnitely the heaven for chand where she is abused by her husband and family. Well scripted and excellent direction where pin drop silence scenes dominate the movie and makes the noise of silence.This conveys the thoughts in chand’s mind and how she is going to confront it.

Deepa Mehta,Indian-born Canadian film director, known for her Earth,water and Fire trilogy,proves again.She has always been honest towards her film’s demands. She could have made this film in Hindi or atleast partially in Punjabi to achieve a wider audience but she uses unadulterated Punjabi throughout for a much more effective result.The black and white sequences are a visual Ecstasy.
