A movie with a love story to remember
10 June 2005 | by (Mauritius) – See all my reviews

One of the most touching love stories which leaves the heart yearning for more to see the love tangle....with an ultimate solution!The song MERA KUCHH SAMAAN PADA HAI reveals the cravings of a young heart.Definitely a must see movie.Nassiruddin shah has been to the very peak of a hidden but sincere relationship.His self control is witness to his character and this bears testimony of an undaunted personality.It is a rare love storey in itself.I wonder if I can venture to establish a parallel with the movie MASOOM where again NASSIRUDDIN SHAH succeeds in revealing an outstanding personality of his own as a lover and then as that of a caring husband.Rekha is as usual the very epitome of a devoted wife but careful!no bargain no sharing can be allowed or tolerated if this may someday endanger the very conjugal happiness.Both REKHA and Nassirudin Shah have had the execellence of expression through their performance.Coming out of the theatre the spectators must have definitely felt the lump in their throat.
