A Shakespearean tragedy
24 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A great movie ! Especially the romantic scenes between Farooq and Supriya are sensitively depicted. A true classic piece of work ! An instructive lesson in movie making. Another rare gem from the alternative cinema of India. Khayyam scores once again. The actors play their roles extremely well. A true Sagar Sarhadi classic . This movie could have been instrumental in awakening the law enforcement agencies to a major bride buying racket that was going on in India in the 1980s. The victims were usually minors and the buyers were generally middle east sheiks. The story , especially the ending is a bit clichéd and thats the reason I give this movie 9 stars instead of 10.

the theme is hard hitting and powerful. A movie worth watching .
