It's heart-rending
23 April 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It is one of the most heart-rending movies that I have seen till date. And the final scene would make most cry - and you wouldn't be sure whether you are crying for the character or for yourself or for something that can't be explained in words but only felt in the deep recess of our hearts. For most it might be just another good movie that makes you feel very sad and depressed. But for anyone who has ever loved and doted on anyone as if she was your child, lover and mother all rolled into one; loved so deeply that her presence is what helps you breathe and her absence shatters your world - he would be able to feel what Kamal's character really goes through.
