The movie speaks for itself
16 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, the movie might belong to the genre of silent movies, but the movie speaks for itself. Instant Classic, Amazing direction truly flawless acting make this a memorable experience.

Kamal has shown in this movie, what skill set someone requires to reach high standards. The movie has comedy, nice drama and an exceptional ending to wind it all.

This movie was rightly honored by the Cannes Jury in 1988 and I would say it deserves much more. It can be appreciated by everyone. If you are not an Indian maybe you will take 20-25 Min's to start appreciating the movie, but take my words, after that you'll love it.

It is a redefining piece of work in Indian Cinema. A silent movie itself has its own charm, but this one is a silent movie with a great story and a marvelous crew to support that. This is more than perfect.
