Based on Thomas Hardy’s classic novel Tess of the D’Urbervilles, Trishna is a beautifully shot, classic tale of love and tragedy set across modern day rural Rajasthan and the thriving metropolis of Mumbai.
Trishna (Pinto) meets a wealthy young British businessman, Jay Singh (Ahmed), who has come to India to work in his father’s hotel business, and they fall in love.
But despite their feelings for each other, their relationship must remain a secret due to the conflicting pressures of a rural society, which is changing rapidly.
Their problems seem to be solved when Jay takes Trishna to the exciting new world of Mumbai.
But Trishna harbours a dark secret that threatens the very heart of their love affair.
