Shakespeare Wallah

Lizzie (Felicity Kendal) is an actress in a Shakespearean theater troupe that has seen better days. The troupe tours India to dwindling crowds who are less interested in all things British in the wake of Indian independence.

Madhur Jaffrey plays the role of the Indian actress Manjula in this romantic drama with musical score by cinematic giant Satyajit Ray.
