REVIEWS:

"Two seductive performances...the film is gorgeous, full of beautifully-composed imagery..." -- Gramophone

"This is a superb production and should be in the collections of anyone in the least bit interested in Indian classical music… Both audio and video quality are superb, and the BBC should be congratulated for this release." -- Discs of the Year 2003, musicweb.uk.net
