A remarkable movie
10 September 2009 | by (Bangalore, India) – See all my reviews

An exceptional movie. This one surpasses Rang De Basanti and A Wednesday by several aspects. In the beginning th movie gives you a feeling that its going to be another movie with the protagonist call but the portrayal of characters, the acting, background score, all seemed so well balanced, never felt boring even for a minute. As expected actors like Rajat Kapoor, Aupam Kher, Rajpal Yadav were splendid. The best part of the movie was the way the characters get connected to each other and influence each other's lives. Living up to the expectation of the Indian movie tradition, the movie also provides a "Happy Ending" yet without being forced into a Happy Ending scenario. A great work by the director and all the actors who have chipped in great contributions.

Good to see exceptional movies coming these days that have raised the standards of Indian movie industry, that is no more tied to Songs, forced romance and melodrama to keep the audience glued to their seats but movies that have conviction and substance.
