Quotes

[first lines]
Gautam: The premier of your first film is always special, but not if Diwali is on the same day. People are generally busy with celebrations at home. It is unlikely that all the invitees will turn up - especially if it's an off-beat film.

Love watching Priety Zinta in Indian Avtaar
28 March 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Being a Bengali,i love watching Bengali movies but watching Amitabh Bachchan in an English movie is a treat.And one more thing which attract me towards this movie The Last Lear is Priety Zinta.The way she dressed,her makeup,she carries herself beautifully.I find her very beautiful in saaries with a big bindi on her forehead. She looks so beautiful in the movie,the funniest thing is i used to copy her most of the time but can't look exactly like her.For me,she is the most beautiful actress in our bollywood.The movie is based on Shakespeare's play,the way Rituparno explains the story of Harish played by Amitabh Bachchan is just mind blowing.All must watch the movie,the movie can't be missed.
