The Most Beautiful Documentary Ever Made on Islam
5 December 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The director has really done justice with the title of the movie and has managed to create a filmographic marvel in the history of Islamic documentaries to say the least.

The film not only describes the central character and personality of the prophet of Islam beautifully but depicts the historical sequence of events quite accurately. They have managed to keep the flow real smooth and the entire aura surrounding the movie soothing and calm.

The cast has enacted simply beautifully.

The script is simple story-teller but real powerful. In fact if you're a Muslim there are several instances in the movie where you'll feel like crying and there is a high possibility that your entire perception of Islam changes and you may stop whatever you were doing and might surrender yourself and immediately start repenting for your sins after watching it. Must watch for Muslims and Non-Muslims both.
