Well-done yet heart-wrenching
23 December 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

An extremely well-done movie (although not terribly intellectual), both lead actors do an excellent acting job with good material. Very simply, the plot focusses around the relationship between a single man and a girl he takes in, who has lost her memory. I was recommended this as an Indian film that is very non-Bollywood, and that is certainly true. (The unbelievably improbably coincidences are kept to a minimum, and there is no long-lost twin brother or dying mother or any of the inevitable Bollywood cliches.)

Be warned though, after watching this you might feel vaguely depressed for the rest of the evening.
