The character 'Parzan' is based upon a child named Azhar, a victim of the devastating Gujarati riots of 2002 who is still missing to this day. The parents of the child placed his picture in the end credits of the film in hopes that he is still alive and someone may recognize him. See more »
Parzania is easily one of the best movies i've seen in a LONG while. as i watched the movie, my mind was full of respect and admiration for all those who acted and invested in this movie.
first off, it was made brilliantly. the shots, the score.. exquisite. the acting was brilliant too. it was REAL and HONEST and amazingly believable. the movie talks of the events that took place in Gujarat in 2002 on a macro level. at the same time, like in many movies, we are given a local perspective, and this makes for a very personal viewing experience. if you truly do appreciate movies, you'll notice the detail in which this movie and its production has been thought out. everything is symbolic, significant and highly stimulating.
again, the characters are very REAL and make you FEEL for the story. and thats just it. it isn't just a 'story'. it describes what ACTUALLY happened and that itself should hit you hard, right in the chest. the situation is a sensitive one, all the same it has been treated carefully and honestly and made me realize that they have truly used the potential of the medium that is motion picture.
a must-watch. recommend it to your friends and family and be prepared to be FEEL. be prepared for an incredibly REAL and DEEPLY-IMPACTING movie experience.
