The best movie
17 May 2002 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best, or rather the best movie I have ever seen. The storyline and the characters are simple yet so complex. Seeing this movie is like being there for the time. The photography and the locations are absolutely fabulous, would remind of some time in your life. The facial expressions on Kamal's face are quite realistic. In one sequence the heroine is lost and Kamal has searched all around the village for her and not been able to find her. He sits in front of god, lights a candle looking at God's statue, just from his face expressions it is visible how much he wants her back in his life. The end scene would fill anyone into big time thoughts. Only downside is that silk smita has helped this movie to get Adult certificate and some boring song sequences.
