beautiful film....
14 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

A very beautiful and touching film about a deaf and dumb girl with a passion for indian classical dance. ufortunately her stepmother and step sister do not like her and treat her like an invalid. She meets an simple good hearted street musician who plays the dafli(hand drum).after his promises to her dying father make sure that she was happy. the story takes on several turns through several hardships faced between the two. Before he realises the love shared between them.The soundrack to this film is beautiful and combies the sound of the dafli(hand drum) and the ghungroo(ankle bells) beautifuly. especially in the song "dafli wale!" Its a shame that they dont make interesting films like these anymore...
