worst movie you can see in the name of art movie
20 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

this movie i have seen long back when i was forced to see it as it was telecast ed on the only TV network of that time in India . oh my god what a waste of time . I remember the title to mark it a baseline to understand the bad movies . and i feel sad when somebody gave it 9+ rating . Please see this movie and if you can see it till end get your medical checkup done . if you stop this movie in middle(or in ten Min's) and feel like burn the DVD then it is expected behavior .

the movie is all slow moving , direction less story which is focused on a person who has disappeared without any cause . and I have seen the movie till the point where they donate his books to a library . and my patience ran out . I was a young kid but I was most patient in my family . my all family members left one by one to the local recreation center in the town . because this movie was telecast ed on the only channel which was available that time in India . and when i went to the local recreation center I found almost everyone in the town there because no one was watching TV that day . This was enough to understand how bad is this movie .

frankly those who don't know India should know that till mid nineties there was only one TV channel and only one movie used to come in a week on Sunday . so when they telecast a movie on Sunday it used to be like a curfew in small towns . and if people cant watch that movie you can understand how bad it is ....
