Moving but weak
6 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

A real life story about a man accused of rape of his 3 daughters. Although some viewers might find the film too dark for their liking, but its worth the watch.

Rajpal Yadav playing the lead role is brilliant! If someone thought he was only good for comic roles, they need to watch this movie. Through minimalist dialogue, he acts with great expression, dark, mysterious, happy, in pain, fear - its a treat to watch.

The main female protagonist did some crazy acting too. Oldie Kader Khan is a classic while Prem Chopra is decent. I found one of the daughters pretty hot too.

Now the bad part - its the director's debut, so its a typical bollywood 90's directing. Slow start, overdone dialogues at times, few scenes going over the top, there are some flaws. No post-production happened, I guess cause of the low budget. If Mani Ratnam directed it, it could win a damn Oscar. Watch it!
