Story


Set in December 1984, "Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain" is based on true events when a devastating pesticide leak in Madhya Pradesh, central India, killed thousands of people. Filmed in India, "Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain" traces the lives of those living in Bhopal during the lead-up to what is still the world's biggest chemical disaster through to its tragic aftermath, which many feel has still not been addressed, and which continues to have a major impact on peoples' lives today. The victims of the Bhopal disaster have still, to this day, never received an official apology from the Indian or American government.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..although independently financed, the film favors the melodramatic overemphasis that's become something of a Bollywood house style..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]
“..perfectly adequate..”
by Sam Weisberg [Village Voice]
“..the all-too-real apocalyptic images are impressive, even if the mixing of drama and documentary doesn't completely work..”
by Graham Fuller [NY Daily News]
