Great movie, very touching.
22 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had seen this movie about 15 years ago. I was so impressed!!!! Amazing performances from everyone in the cast. Very subdued, very realistic. I totally loved the movie. I could not forget it since then. This is one of those movies which cannot be easily found in movie rental stores. I am hoping to watch it sometime again!! I have to put in a special word about Kunal Kapoor. When I started to watch the movie, I did not have too many expectations from him, but he definitely impressed me by the time I reached the end! And the subtle romance between him and Supriya Pathak, very beautifully directed. Over all, great movie, great cast, good story. Not a run of the mill kind of story.
