She is subsequently released... Written by
I am a great admirer of Mahesh Manjrejar Movies. But Virrudh kind of disappoints me when it comes to the directors ability to show real world. I mean the story is very familiar when it comes to the Indians but i was expecting the directors to make it look very real and very touching which the director fails in doing. The film has some extremely good performances given by Mr Amitab Bachan and Sharmila Tagore Patudi, but fails to get that extra which would have done justice to the subject that the director chose. More importance was given to the before death story than the after death.
Virrudh could have been made better!!
