Hi Momma,

I've heard complaints that it's totally different from Q&A, the book it was adapted from, but I think this is supposed to be a retelling of the Rama and Sita story - Rama has a brother, Lakshmana, who is the embodiment of sacrifice and redemption.

I think I told you this before, but I just remembered because you know how I pay all that attention to colors in movies? Yellow, in Indian culture, represents the feminine ideal, joy, love, affection, and was Sita's color (I believe) whereas blue, which is what the main male character was wearing throughout, is Rama's color and represents calm, enlightenment and victory. I LOVE this movie!

P.S. "Jai Ho" means victory against great odds.
