Sallam to all who read my comment, I saw this movie in 27th July-06 Thursday in Bamyan in front of Buddah. when we start watching this document Movie i was just feeling that Nelofer Pazira is the only one who could do ,i am sure when making this film they went in to a great trouble, but surly at the end having a good result of making this this i really liked this Movie,it was about the destruction of the BIG BUDDAH OF my homeland ,Bamyan, which was destroyed by the enemy of our Honor our homeland, i am sure this was done by external authority,no Afghan people could not do this horrid action to his country,so now it is done and now we have to thank from those who are still thinking about that and try to show this to the world that we did't forget the BIG BUDDAH of Bamyan.

The Gaint Buddahs was one the first film i have seen in whole my life about such a big treasure of the world.indeed this kind of movies should be seen for it shows the fact of something,this is a evidence to what had happened to the Buddah.

Iam really thankful from the producer of this movie and the actress of this movie ,NELOFAR PAZIRA. i advise you to watch this document Movie i can not define the history of this but you got to watch this
