Best movie I have ever seen
12 November 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is really getting a lower rating by the people who really don't understand what is serious movie making. This must get a 10 out of 10. This is not only my opinion but opinion of many others who have seen this movie.

The director of this movie Rwittik Ghatak also acted in this movie and demonstrated how painful a life could be with lost direction. Not having direction seems to be a fundamental problem of life for many people who think seriously about it. The division of the country ( India and Pakistan ) has painfully rooted among many who really suffered; we just realize that how painful it can be through this movie.

For serious movie watchers this is a must see movie. For casual watchers, don't see it! There is no entertainment in this movie..entertainment in common sense , I mean..there is of course, intellectual entertainment.
