A breath of Fresh Air,
12 June 2003 | by (Heraganahalli, India) – See all my reviews

The Indian film Industry needs revival, since it is stagnating with mediocrity in talent and the mediocrity is put on the pedestal and worshipped by few biased morons of the Indian Media, who have no clue about class, aesthetics or process of review. "Armaan" is a one of the movies after a decade of decadence that spells a ray of hope, a wiff of fresh air. The casting could't be any better. When you have two stel warts of the Indian Cinema portraying father and Son, you can only expect some poignant moments and cinematic brilliance. There is no headshaking or filthy gyrations, pelvic thrusts as seen im the movies that has the Bollywood scums--the Khans-that is played out in the name of Choreography and acting and this is not representative of Indian Cinema. Amitab Bachchan the "Al Pacino" of the Indian Films has given one of his trademark portrayals so much so you wish there was more of him to see. Gracy Singh has class and elegance and act she can-indeed well. I hope we can see more of this talented actress. Anil Kapoor is the finest actor in the genre of "Robert De Nero" an all-rounder and the ultimate actor that the Indian Cinema is blessed with. Overall I like this movie-"I really,really,like this movie", if I can borrow the exuberation from Sally Field on her Oscar nomination.
