Heaven on Earth

Deepa Mehta (2008) 

Chand (Preity Zinta) is a young woman who travels from India to Canada to marry Rocky (Vansh Bhardwaj), a man she has never met. Her dream of a new life morphs into a nightmare as marriage to Rocky and his family becomes a numbing spiral of confusion and pain. Chand finds hope in her friendship with Rosa (Yanna McIntosh), a street-smart woman from Jamaica who works with Chand at a laundry factory. Rosa gives Chand a magical root and promises that it will make Rocky fall deeply in love with her. The experiment ends in a surreal parallel life that mirrors an Indian fable involving a King Cobra.

Moves into the realm of the imagination and magic realism to concoct a strong artistic statement about the powers of the mind.

Slow-burning and quietly potent... magnetic... tantalizing

Vibrant Imagery... taboo-challenging
— Variety
Preity Zinta in the lead role gives a subdued, moving performance that effectively takes the film into its metaphysical internalised nuances.
