     11Ex-bureaucrat Bikram Singh’s debut feature is 
     12an invented folk legend set in Shekhawati, 
     13Rajasthan. When a couple finds their daughter 
     14terminally ill, a soothsayer directs them to a 
     15distant village where no girls live beyond the 
     16age of seven. The cure is to be found in the 
     17cleaning of an ancient well, which in turn 
     18uncovers numerous past crimes which have to 
     19be repented and exorcised before the curse can 
     20be lifted. Both the script and camerawork are 
     21relentlessly exoticised in the effort to make an 
     22orientalist fantasy about superstition.
