The calming din inside the seashell, the undulating blue threads on the powerloom, a memory of the seashore among the shadows of the city. What happens to love when destiny changes course? Sapta Sagaradaache Ello (”Somewhere Beyond the Seven Seas”) dives deep into the intense relationship of two people amidst the turbulent waves of life. The Kannada-language melodrama released in September to become one of the current year’s most acclaimed Indian films.

An aching love story… like that conch shell that is far removed from the ocean, but still resounds with the sounds of the vast expanse of water. – Film Companion

The second half hits like a breeze on a hot summer day… a must-watch. – Times of India
