Eeshwar is truly Eeshwar
26 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are very few movies which inspire oneself. Eeshwar is one of them. Anil Kapoor has given one of his career best performances. You can see how an actor grows to the fullest maturity by seeing the performance of Mr. Kapoor in this movie. The character Eeshwar is played by Anil Kapoor. The story is of a person who has grown of age but has not grown as of his intellectuality. Eeshwar has his own family and he narrates his story in the movie.

It is not that everyday you get to see such kinds of movies. Eeshwar is a perfect example of classic. His wife is a widow. Eeshwar re-marries her. She plays an important role in carving the lifestyle of Eeshwar. It is a tragic film very well casted and framed. It is a must watch for everyone.
