Awesome if you have heart
27 August 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie will definitely leave a tear on our eyes at the end.

The way the characters are depicted in the movie is excellent. The story, characters and the feeling they give to the viewers is something you cant forget in your life.

You should have watched many a LOVE movies/stories in your life, but this movie is far different from them. Let me tell how it is different, you will not face even a Romantic (i mean a LOVE song with Hero and Heroine) Song, no vulgar language, no vulgar scenes, even this movie don't have any MESSAGE, except the feeling that we cant breath with out our loved ones. You can watch this movie with your family (though a LOVE movie). You will NOT ENJOY the movie, but damn sure you will LOVE and FEEL the message from the movie.
