Pain of a father
6 February 2007 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

The movie was not a success at box office but earned reviews due to the meticulous handling of the script by the director Mahesh Bhatt. Movies like Saraansh, Arth, Zakhm and Kaash make us feel the worthiness of this director. Story is quite sensitive, touching and touches your soul. Jackie has so brilliantly played the role of Ritesh that you actually feel the pain of the man who lost his wealth, fame and spouse and has to be prepared to loose the only hope of his life, his son. Unlike Akele Hum Akele Tum, the separation is not short lived but forever. The scene where the Doctor informs Jackie that his son is not gonna stay alive longer really pierces through your heart.

I would recommend to watch it on a quite evening. But be prepared to resist a woeful tale of a father torn apart with emotions.
