‘Fatal Reaction Bombay’, the final episode of a four-part personal odyssey of Marijke Jongbloed, concentrates on the way in which relationships are forged and mystified in the cosmopolitan part of India. The modern Indian woman struggling to break out of the confinements of her traditional fate has a lonely path to clear. In her attempt to determine her own future – including choosing her own partner – she clashes with religious, cultural and familial restrictions with no singles scene nor matriarchal camaraderie to back her up. The films shows how arranged marriages work.
