An Intimate Look at Heaven on Earth

Aug 04, 2013

Through the Eyes of Producer-Director-Scriptwriter Deepa Mehta

Heaven on Earth, which saw its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this year, is a must-see film about the universal intricacies surrounding abuse. The horrors of abuse are seen through the perspectives of each member of a Canadian-Punjabi immigrant family, who are bound by the harsh realities of their respective circumstances.

Shot in both colour and black and white, this Punjabi language film centres around a newly-married couple played by Bollywood heavyweight, Preity Zinta, and newcomer, Vanish Bhardwaj. Both characters are victims of abuse, but how they choose to retaliate, if at all, is the journey around which the story is set. Inspired by the play, Naga Mandala, which in turn was inspired by an old Indian folktale about a lonely wife and a king cobra, the plot unfolds in the formidable style that is indicative of the uniquely insightful and multi-talented genius of Deepa Mehta.
