Tehzeeb update {see also: music review}

Looks like Khalid Mohamed is all set to give us another example of "X with songs", where X is a foreign film. Go read the synopsis of Tehzeeb and then sample the following (all added emphasis is mine): After having neglected her children for many years, world famous pianist [note the musical connection] Charlotte visits her daughter Eva in her home. To her surprise she finds her other daughter, Helena, there as well. Helena is mentally impaired, and Eva has taken Helena out of the institution where their mother had placed her. The tension between Charlotte and Eva only builds up slowly, until a nightly conversation releases all the things they have wanted to tell each other.. X, in case you were wondering is Ingmar Bergman's classic Autumn Sonata. (Incidentally, although KM seems to deny any similarity -- are we surprised? -- the IMDB movie connections page for Bergman's film already lists Tehzeeb!)
