The Blue Tower (2008) Poster

An illicit romance leads to betrayal and crime. Smita Bhide's micro-budget contemporary B-movie is a refreshingly dark, character-driven vision of British Indian life.

| An interesting layered film dealing with many issues
A kind of British film noir in it's ambiguous morality and sexual motivation, this film is much more than you first expect. Set in the predominantly British Asian town of Southall it reflects well the melancholy of being trapped in a suffocating society where dreams and desires come second to what family and the community expect from you. Unusually, the victim of this social isolation is not the female but the male protagonist Mohan, whose arranged marriage and lack of career have led him to desperation. The blue tower itself seems to represent reality, specifically how we don't always see the world as it is but how we are. The music lends itself well to the overall mood of the film and there are some shocking twists. Certainly worth watching!
