This movie definately had its twists and turns. It was different and okay since the heroin is a known actress from "Slum... M.", which made it more worthwhile to watch which initally engaged me to take it out to see her act again. I have mixed feelings about this and agree with the other comments posted here in more or lesser degrees. The ending was quite unpredictable, shocking and unanticipated. I was wondering during the film when he would actually - propose to her and marry her? Which never happened and is odd in the Indian culture which came to some surprise. But maybe if she kept his, 'Baby', they may have wed despite any family opposition of the cast and class system there. Anyhow it was colorful and kept my interest till the end. Thx.

I like this movie for several reasons: (1) the setting is colorful and vibrant; (2) the plot is unpredictable but not unbelievable; and (3) the main characters are quite pretty and handsome.

Though it isn't an uplifting story, it hints at the inner world of Trishna, which is mysteriously fascinating and that's where the awe lies--to understand the psyche of the main character. This film is for those who appreciate the deeper layer of humanity.

This movie kept me on the edge of my seat. It was sad, romantic, profound, and violent. It is not for children. The message and story behind it make up for the lack of great acting. I enjoyed this movie very much and I would recommend it to my friends.

I had lofty expectations for this film based on the trailer I saw on another film. The story seemed far fetched and in that it was disappointing. I should have switched it off earlier as I wasted my time watching it.

The real star of this film is Riz Ahmed, a very talented actor (see him in The Reluctant Fundamentalist). This is a sad story of decadence and depravity seen through the clash of cultures.
The music is gorgeous as is the lush scenery. Michael Winterbottom's direction is terrific.

Knowing that director Michael Winterbottom also did _The Trip_, I wanted the entire film to continue following the 4 British guys on their roadtrip through India, instead of veering back on-road to retell the story of _Tess of the D'Urbervilles_. That being said, I enjoyed _Trishna_.

Interesting tidbit: Freida Pinto can't dance! ... which I knew from the end credits of _Slumdog Millionaire_, but I think it works here, as she plays a woman who doesn't express herself well.

Great story of a woman who loved. A bit of a tragic downer though.
