Freida Pinto in Trishna
Releasing Thursday 10th May
Starring – Freida Pinto, Riz Ahmed, Roshan Seth, Meeta Vasisht, Harish Khanna
Synopsis – Based on Thomas Hardy’s classic novel Tess of The D’Urbervilles, Trishna tells the story of one woman whose life is destroyed by a combination of love and circumstances. Set in contemporary Rajasthan, Trishna (Freida Pinto) meets a wealthy young British businessman, Jay Singh (Riz Ahmed) who has come to India to work in his father’s hotel business.
After an accident destroys her father’s Jeep, Trishna goes to work for Jay, and they fall in love. But despite their feelings for each other, they cannot escape the conflicting pressure of a rural society which is changing rapidly through industrialisation, urbanisation and, above all, education. Trishna’s tragedy is that she is torn between the traditions of her family life and the dreams and ambitions that her education has given her.
