Trishna Gomovies

Primarily based on Thomas Hardy’s traditional novel Tess of the D’Urbervilles, ‘Trishna’ tells the story of 1 girl whose life is destroyed by a mixture of affection and circumstances. Set in modern Rajasthan, Trishna (Freida Pinto) meets a rich younger British businessman Jay Singh (Riz Ahmed) who has come to India to work in his father’s lodge enterprise. After an accident destroys her father’s Jeep, Trishna goes to work for Jay, and so they fall in love. However regardless of their emotions for one another, they can not escape the conflicting pressures of a rural society which is altering quickly by industrialisation, urbanisation and, above all, schooling. Trishna’s tragedy is that she is torn between the traditions of her household life and the goals and ambitions that her schooling has given her.
