Naseer at his brilliant best.
18 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If there was any doubt that Naseer, in my humble opinion, is the best actor of our times, this movie lays those doubts to rest. Anirudh Parmar's character was (since it has been such a long time this movie was released) a challenge in two ways. Not only was Anirudh blind, but his handicap brought out the best of humanity in him. He chooses the noblest cause one of his handicap could undertake, to educate the less fortunate with the same handicap. Also, Anirudh's fierce pride as a productive human being had to be portrayed as such. Naseer not only stood up the challenge but overcame it as only he can. Which actor in the world (Dustin Hoffman included) could play a blind man, without wearing sun-glasses, as well as him playing Anirudh Parmar? For Naseer fans like myself, a definite MUST SEE!
