They go to the Police Station, but the Police Inspector refuses to lodge a complaint until and unless he gets a Medical report.

Great movie, a little mind numbing.
23 May 2003 | by (Santa Barbara, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie ! It is very well made, with a great musical score and beautiful cinematography. It shows Rajasthan in all its glory, but that is not the main point of the movie. It is a movie with a mission and a message, and I really admire Jagmohan Mundhra for making this movie.
