Beautiful Ruins...
6 August 2011 | by (New Delhi, India) – See all my reviews

Just Saw this movie a few days back... First impression was that this movie would be a flash-back kind of presentation because of its title. But for my Surprise, the movie was a 'simple present' presentation. The story is simple, slow but interesting. All the actors have done their part nicely. The Ruins shown are really beautiful and many a times you will feel that you should have been there to feel it. Shabana Ji, Naseer Ji are good as usual. Others were also Natural in acting. But I think the director and the cameraman were more interested in the ruins than the actors! All in all, its a nice movie to watch for a once. Quite real in presentation. This movie is a good example of showing that how can a good movie be made with a few resources!
