A hard-hitting, thought provoking perspective on traditional family values & relationships
While surfing the TV channels on a bored Sunday afternoon, i accidentally bumped on to this film, and then i just froze...within minutes, i found myself desperately surfing the net for more information on it!How is it that i had never heard of this movie before? Such a BRILLIANT script, coupled with such soul stirring performances by maestros like Pankaj Kapur & Raghuvir Yadav-how could i have missed it? How could anyone have missed it? I doubt it if one could easily locate the CD or DVD of this amazing movie, but if you can get one, PLEASE watch it! Movies like these are the saving grace for Indian cinema. Watch it for the gripping screenplay, impeccable direction and realistic treatment...Its simply UNMATCABLE...
