1961: Dona Maria Souzasoares lives a wealthy lifestyle in Portuguese-occupied Goa in post-independent India, along with her husband, Ernesto, a daughter Silvia, Silvia’s husband Lucio, and their two daughters Aurora and Anna.
Imaginatively using supernatural elements to explore Goan history, Trikal deftly takes us into the emotionally charged period before the region’s annexation to India. Boasting of a brilliant ensemble cast, this political drama gains an ethereal quality with Ashok Mehta’s magnificent camerawork.
