very good movie
17 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Be it a remake of "The Others" in Hindi, but was made very nicely for our bollywood context. Performances of all actors including the kids was just amazing. It may be a disappointment to bollywood/bigb fanfare because of his subdued role but overall it is a great movie. Bollywood moviegoers should inculcate a habit of opening up and try to watch something different than the song/dance numbers. Dimple Kapadia was just mind blowing just like she was in Lekin (1990). I had watched the movie all over again after seeing the end to observe the performances more closely. I felt Moushmi stole the show the next time. Also, the girl kid made more sense in her performance. Though the narration felt a little weird during my initial watch, it all made complete sense and opened out at the end.
