Freida Pinto as ‘Trishna’ fails to impress critics!
Freida Pinto’s much anticipated woman-centric film Trishna has gathered mixed responses from the critics overseas. The film, which has Freida playing an Indian girl torn between the traditions of her family life and her dreams and ambitions, has got people talking about her acting skills once again. Does Freida as Trishna fail to make an impact?

Though most of the critics appreciate Freida Pinto as the beautiful and earthy Trishna, they are calling her performance “lifeless” and “confined” in the drama. The New York Times calls Pinto “lovely, lifeless” in the film, and even wrote that “the film has very little heat” in spite of tensed emotional drama and lovemaking scenes between Freida and her co-actor Riz Ahmed.

The New York Times critic wrote, “Ms. Pinto is one of its (the film’s) loveliest attractions, but she and her director haven’t been able to give Trishna a pulse.” Wall Street Journal film reviewer calls Pinto strikingly beautiful but feels she is limited by the confines of her role.

Another reviewer writes, “Pinto has held the screen with her beauty but not left much of a lasting impression, is called upon to play a character of maddening passivity… though she maintains the enigma, at once rigid and malleable, little registers behind Trishna’s blankness.”

The Wall Street Journal reviewer also pointed out that the film is awfully somber. Shot in Jaipur and Mumbai, the movie also stars Indian director Anurag Kashyap and his actress-wife Kalki Koechlin in cameo roles. Directed by Michael Winterbottom, the movie, an adaptation of Thomas Hardy’s novel, Tess of the d’Urbervilles, saw a very limited release in America.
