A stunning adaptation...Intimate and absorbing performances leave you emotionally staggered!!!
8 January 2000 | by See all my reviews

A stunning adaptation depicting real-life events in the famous Bhatt family. A denial of familial truths conspires to affect the lives of a young boy and his mother.

Recommended Indian cinema for fans of the 'less-Bollywoodised'.
