Deepa Mehta’s Fire available on Eagle Video


MUMBAI: Fire, the most admired and controversial film by Deepa Mehta, is being manufactured and released on DVD with subtitles in English by Eagle Home Entertainment.


Fire is a sensitive depiction of two women who, frustrated by marriage, find solace in each other while living in a repressive society. It targets the traditional role of Indian women which demands that they quietly bow to fate and husband.


Releasing the DVD, Eagle video director Surendra Suneja said, “The story of Fire is so powerfully narrated and presented in such a way that we decided to give it a deserved DVD treatment so that it could be enjoyed in its totality.”
