A perfectly made movie
9 November 2004 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

The best thing about the movie is the way it involves you with the story. You don't feel like watching a movie, it is like you are experiencing it as a by stander or a nieghbour. The story telling is so seamless and realistic that you don't even doubt the authenticity even for a second. The greatness of Shyam Benegal is bulging out of every frame of the movie. He shows how can you take a very common social issue and make it into an unforgettable movie. How can you take a story which seems ordinary if verbally narrated and make it into a movie with incredible depth.

All the casts are outstanding in their performance. My concluding comments are "Another master piece from the THE MASTER".
