Movie Haiku:Mehtaís radiant film, based on a sprawling novel by Salman Rushdie, is a huge historical epic spanning the years from 1917 all the way to 1977, years in which the Asian subcontinent transformed itself from a British colony into the nation states of India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. Jan loved it but not yet seen by Rich..
