A great movie unseen, 28 December 2008
Author: Shashi Gudur from United States

incredibly great and realistic movie, showed the real beauty of ladakh, nice story line excellent execution, lead actors looked really great but acting is bleak lead actress Mylène Jampanoï , she is amazingly beautiful. Director succeeded in holding audience attention till the end, even though length of the movie is very long but i never felt bored or off track at any point. Excellent costumes, shooting in ladakh is difficult task , really great efforts from the whole crew. I really feel this movie deserves better promotion world wide. I just came to know about this movie through the news that the lead pair got married.

I really wonder why there is no publicity for such a great movie. fate of this movie quite similar to that of ladakh - unseen and untouched beauty
