Bollywood's Most Technically-Polished Film So Far...
1 July 2001 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Hameshaa, inspired by true story which took place in England, is by far, the most technically perfect film in Bollywood's history. The camera angles, the music, the filters, the dolby sound... The only film that comes close to the technical efforts put forward in this film is 'Dil Se'. And the film's background score is the best I've heard in any bollywood film so far. Hameshaa would have to be Sanjay Gupta's best work. And most original, too, which is hard enough as it is for Mr.Gupta who is reguarly taunted by Hollywood flicks, to be copied.

Even though the story is not broad and emotionally involving, if you're a fan of film technology... then this supernatural-love story will remain a classic in your collection...
