Spectacular Story line and a Great Narration
13 November 2010 | by (Abu Dhabi) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie long after it actually released, had to watch it on DVD. But, this movie has got the power to hold you till the end. All the characters are perfectly casted and well portrayed. All the credits to N.Chandra for making a superb effort. He is a brilliant director and a narrator. My warm regards to you Sir. Talk about Anupam khers character or Rajpal yadav's simple role of a person coming to Mumbai in search of some work, All characters were very real and the movie was far better in the approach than typical Hindi movies. The message of hope was conveyed brilliantly. I would suggest all to get the DVD from the nearest shop and make it a mandatory viewing.
