Poster Imposter

Once again, Deepa Mehta disappoints. Last time it was Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. (Well, I am not even going to mention Lisa Ray and John(!) in Water). And now it is the poster from Volver…sigh.


As I watched Mira Nair’s Namesake I was enraged that she had casually picked scenes by Ray and Ghatak and replicated them shoddily in her film. But she tried to make up for it by dedicating the film to Satyajit Ray and Ritwik Ghatak.Did Mehta do something similar in the 1947 Earth credits?

The Heaven on Earth poster is from The Chasing Iamb
