User Reviews

Elegant prose cannot hide inelegant logic
28 April 2010 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

The only reason I watched this movie was because Mani Kaul was associated with it. Acclaimed in the critics circles, I wanted to have a taste of his body of work. "The Cloud Door" is a technically sound product. High on stunning visuals, sound department and beautiful locales but sadly the premise is empty. Due credit is given to Bhasa & Jayasi on which "The Cloud Door" is based upon but it crystal evident that Mani Kaul has failed to translate it on the screen.

Anu Agarwal:: She was riding high on the success of mega-block buster Aashiqui, wonder what made her sign the dotted line for this movie.

Should you dare to watch it, there is nothing much to lose - the running time is 29-minutes.
