Quote:
"Even while underscoring the dark sides of immigration [in Heaven on Earth], [Deepa] Mehta refuses to demonize diasporic communities as sites of cultural and interpersonal dysfunction. By contrast, uncovering the complex rifts and cleaving of immigrant existence and its frequent reliance on formulaic narratives of achievement allows Mehta to expose immigration marriage as imbricated in the transnational fairy tales of globalization."
-- Pavlina Radia
