greatest art film India ever saw!

it has no story,no plot,it isn't a film either,it is a miniature of greatest artpieces togather. deeply symbolic,and highly aesthetic. no one can criticise it,if they watch it,not just through their eyes,but soul instead. it requires heavy knowledge and deep aesthetic ability to understand and interpret the symbolic scenes.u can understand it only if u lend your soul and watch it through eyes of the painter.choreography is outstanding and art direction is amazing.every aspect is perfect, it never appears to be shot or filmed,rather inscribed naturally out of memories. it took me several months to understand it partially, i bet no one even hussain himself could understand it completely, because it has multidimensions,some of which remain hidden every time,and thats the beauty and mystery of every great artpiece.since its not part of popcorn culture it is expected to be criticised by dumb,loud masses and classes even, because it is made only for artlovers.if u r not one don't watch it and die in darkness of ignorance away from beauty of is the greatest art creation ever made on planet.
