Indian cinema takes and chance and it pays off.
17 October 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Anupam Kher takes a chance on Assamese film director Jahnu Barua's first major Hindi outing, and it pays off. Jahnu Barua's direction is tight and his story is touching. Anupam Kher has shown that he can make audiences laugh with some of his previous role and in this he shows that he can make us cry as well. Urmila Matondkar shows us her character's frustration as she gets upset with her father whom she loves so dearly. The cinematography is breath-taking and the musical score is haunting. This movie will hold it's own against any other film at any film festival it may play at. When people think of Indian cinema, one tends to think of a catchy song with a man and woman dancing around a tree in a park. Although those pictures can be fun, it is nice to know that India can produce serious cinema as well.
