the terrorist is one of the best movies ever to come out of india. the movie is totally unlike the normal indian bollywood movie. part-inspired by the events surrounding the assassination of late prime-minister rajiv gandhi, terrorist takes a look into the minds of an assassin.
the movie moves at a steady pace giving us time to understand the protagonist and sympathise with her. this bond is accentuated by ayesha dharkar's terrific acting, she clearly is a unique talent and hopefully the whole world will get to appreciate her in star wars II.
santosh sivan who is essentially a cinematographer takes to directing and comes up with a gripping tale. the movie shines with his brilliant work behind the camera as well, capturing every beautiful raindrop & the subtleties in dharkar's expressions.
the movie stands out as special, intelligent & warm, among its peers. a truly significant movie
a fantastic 10!!
