Storyline

Born and raised by her grandparents in Connecticut, Samantha Hartley (Kelli Garner) travels to Rajasthan, India, where her parents, Sara (Lynn Collins) and Jeremy (Justin Theroux) had their honey-moon during the year 1983. At Rajapur Railway Station she is met by Amar (Bhanu Goswami), who takes her to the Desert Hotel, even though she had planned to stay at Niwas Palace. When she insists, he takes her there, and she meets Vikram Singh Rathore (Yusuf Hussain) and his sullen cousin, Jai Singh (Manoj Bajpai), the owner, who makes it clear that she cannot reside there. She looks around, meets Jai's niece, Shefali (Rita Joshi), and is mistaken for a Grants and Proposal Student, Doyle. She decides to assume this name, is allocated a room, and sets about to investigate why her grandmother not only blamed but also filed a lawsuit against Jai for the death of her son.

I liked Kelli Garner
9 April 2006 | by kunawaraSee all my reviews

Although I think that the cinematography in the movie was superb, and I was intrigued by the portrayal of Jeremy (Justin Theroux) as an alcoholic, I was most interested in the character of Samantha (Kelli Garner). You may remember Kelli from Aviator as the young Faith Domergue.

Although Samantha is in her early 20's, she clearly has led a very sheltered life, and is from an extremely wealthy family. Upon arrival in the ancient town of Rajapur, she was clearly bewildered by the dramatic contrasts between this and her previous life experiences, but I couldn't understand her facial expressions. My immediate reaction was that this was a "valley girl" who had been miscast in the part, but then I realized that she was like the 10 year old Lucy in The Chronicles of Narnia. They were both dazed and overwhelmed by the world that they were surrounded by.

As soon as I thought of Samantha as a child instead of a young adult, everything became much clearer. She had never experienced anything like this in her life and didn't know how to react. It was as if she was in a glass bubble. As the film developed, she started to develop. I could see the glass breaking and the young adult emerging from the child.

Thank you, Kelli for a moving and enlightening performance.
