SYNOPSIS

Ratna arbejder som husholderske hos den moderne ungkarl Ashwin i Mumbai. Ashwin, der kommer fra en velstående familie, har været bosiddende i New York, hvor han havde slået sig ned som forfatter – noget, som han dog måtte afbryde for at flytte tilbage til Indien for at hjælpe sin far i dennes entreprenørvirksomhed.
Selvom Ashwin har alt, kan Ratna fornemme, at han har opgivet sine drømme, modsat Ratna, der intet har, men som drømmer om et liv som modedesigner.
Ashwin fascineres af Ratna, og varme følelser begynder at opstå mellem dem. Men kærlighedsforhold på tværs af de sociale lag er en umulighed i det indiske kastesystem.
”Sir” er en varm fortælling om drømme, modsætninger og begrænsninger.

PRESSEN SKREV:

“An intelligent romance within the confines of upper-crust Indian society. Premiering in the Cannes Critics’ Week sidebar, the film could occupy the same slot that The Lunchbox did back in 2013, providing feel-good fodder for international markets. A warmly nuanced look at love in a place filled with constraints and contradictions, and where a broken heart could perhaps be the first step toward emancipation.”
Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

“An appealing, understated sweetness.
Thanks to the disarming performance from Tillotama Shome, the audience is likely to be just as smitten with Ratna as is Ashwin.”
Wendy Ide, Screen Daily

“Thoughtful and heartfelt drama. There is real depth, poignancy and strength to Shome’s character. A delicately observed and attractive drama with some great Mumbai cityscapes and an excellent performance from Shome.”
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“A modern-day Cinderella story with an edge, presenting a side of Mumbai that is rarely seen in cinema and tying in with strong themes of female independence.”
Leo Barraclough, Variety

“A deceptively simple, emotionally resonant drama that (rightly) puts its characters before its themes”
Baradwaj Ragan, Film Companion
