    This film is a charming portrait of Ashgari Bai, one of the oldest exponents alive, of the dying art of Dhrupad, the most orthodox form of Hindustani Classical music. She is also probably the only woman to have espoused this austere and invocative form of music. And she has been conferred national awards including the Padmshree. Ironically however, she remains a curiously anonymous and lonely figure today, battling against insurmountable odds in a small town of Madhya Pradesh in India.  Showcasing her wit, her forthrightness, her charm and her indomitability, this documentary is the story of a precious gem of India who insists on living life of her own terms. An engrossing 45-minute documentary on the life and times of this extraordinary lady. --- Afternoon on Sunday Adoring camera … superb editing … the finished product, like its subject, is perfect.   --- Outlook The documentary is also, perhaps, the story of any number of musicians in India who have slipped into poverty, loneliness and ablivion. --- Times of India Fortunately, her story was captured on film before it was too late … a charming film. --- Mid-Day
