Anwar...hmmmm....Anwar
15 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What should i say about this movie it is only the fact that it is a love story disguised it's about a Muslim man who is in love with a woman who in turn actually never loved him in reality perspective people would just say to anwar that he should get over her and find somebody else but they don't realize what a complicated matter love really can be and well that is the love that anwar feels for this woman mehru the beauty of it is the story of anwar one thing that I was curious about is Anwar's fascination of hindu temples despite being a Muslim if he's a Muslim he should abide in his traditions although his fasciantion is quite alright the songs of this movie are really good a well made movie about love stories combined and a few haunting scenes this movie is worth a see for someone who is really a romantic and understands the beauty of love and love stories.
