The result is as powerful a screen heroine as any we have seen in years."

There is far less meat in the role than she imagines", though Mohar Basu from Koimoi found Chadda "feisty and brilliant in the film". Chadda has worked with director Mira Nair in a Mexican-American anthology film Words with Gods which is directed by nine different directors.
