Superb storyline and music
23 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is a superb storyline and has excellent music. Set in the background of Rajasthan, this picture gives a beautiful insight into the Rajasthani culture and way of life. One wonders why more such enjoyable pictures are not made. More such pictures will enhance the stock of Bollywood films.
