“’Everyone has the right to follow their dreams’. It is with calm and delicacy that Rohena Gera explores this notion in Sir, a romantic tale set in the context of the immutable caste system in India... Young widow Ratna leaves her village and her younger sister for Bombay where she’s employed as a maid in a very tall and luxurious tower-block – in an apartment belonging to Ashwin, the son of a well-connected family... Ratna’s daily life revolves around work: the preparation of meals, housework in abundance, shopping for groceries… Her boss, ‘Sir’, is having a difficult time: he has broken up with his fiancée in the run up to their wedding... Developed along the ultra-classic lines of impossible love, Sir gently ushers the story along, calmly depicting the two castes and the evolution of the relationship between the two protagonists who, slowly but surely, move closer together. Theirs is a microcosm echoing Indian tradition and its slow evolution... The delicacy with which the subject is treated and the well-judged restraint shown by the film, won’t fail to delight fans of beautiful and simple love stories.” - Fabien Lemercier, Cineuropa
