Good movie by Bhatt
9 June 2000 | by (Bangalore) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best movies directed by Bhatt. This slow moving movie is dotted with some excellent Gazals sung by Jagjith sing. A good performance again from Shabana Azmi keeps the show going. But personally, I felt the story to be a little dragging. Arth is supposed to be the most popular 'Art' movie among the masses! Strictly recommended for hearing the songs!!
