Kitaab was a special kind of movie
5 March 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Years back, Kitaab was a special kind of movie directed by Gulzar. This is a gloomy and dark story of a boy, who is growing up and he try to understand the world around him. This is a journey of a boy in whole movie... not only the outside but also the inside of a child's psyche. I can't forget the presentation of very famous song in this film by RD Burmun, "Dhanno..." At that time, means 1977 there was a debate everywhere about the parenting and child psychology. This is a very different way that Gulzar presents in his movie. His point of view is entirely different from that concepts that was the the topic of debate in that time. In whole movie director thinks like a child. So you can understand how a child observes the world. A remarkable creation by Gulzar.
