An elegant film that entertains you thoroughly!
15 October 2002 | by (Chicago, IL. USA) – See all my reviews

I believe that Vijeta is a must see film, and is heads above regular Indian cinema. I was completely engrossed in it from start to finish, and feel that there was never a dull moment. The veteran actors were terrific, and delivered captivating performances. Although I could tell that Kunal Kapoor was still budding at the time, he was far from disappointing. The war scenes were very realistic, and the mood sent rushes of adrenaline through the body. Ironically, the rest of the movie was set on a very subtle pace, which gave us just the right amount of background on the characters. The movie does a great job of maneuvering our minds into thinking like the characters, and partaking in their fears and joys. The opening scene indicating the father's fear of finding his dead son in the desert was very powerful. As was the scene where the essence of Angad's relationship with his grandmother is captured at the time od her death. All in all, it was a fabulous film, with plenty to offer everybody. I would even go as far as claiming that it may be of the best Indians films ever.
