Masterpiece
20 January 2012 | by (calcutta) – See all my reviews

It is surely a 'masterpiece'. A precious pearl in comparison to today's violence and imaginary(science fiction) films. A treat to watch it. Fortunate enough to watch it on television. Brought tears to my eyes. Cussack hardships in those days are heart-wrenching.

Hats off to the producer and director and actors and all those who were part of this great film. A great screenplay, acting, the outdoor locations and photography make it a great film. Certainly it could have won more awards. It will now be part of my collection. Surely will grab a DVD of it if I get my hands on it
