Nice Movie
16 February 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I was unsure about the movie. but when i watched it i was surprised. Directed by Mahreen Jabbar it is a nice film. The acting of the young ramchand is great. All other artists performed well.

There are a few things which should have been checked. 1. The film is slow paced. though it had the gripping element which "Khuda key Liye" lacked badly, it would have been nicer if the film were slightly faster paced.

2. Noman Ejaz was misfit. He didn't speak in typical rajhistani or sindhi way. A local actor would have done better.

3. Maria Wasti also performed well but at occasions she spoke urdu like the pakistani way and forgot the typical Indian accent.

4. The jail supretendent spoke the urdu perfectly didn't even try to change his accent at all which was too bad. Indian people don't speak urdu that way.

5. In the last scenes when ram chand is being released from Indian jail he was holding a plastic bag with English and urdu written on it. He should have been shown holding a bad with Hindi or better nothing at all written on it.

6. The ramchad's mother failed to deliver any nice acting. I wonder why she was casted in that role.

Overall the film was great and it worth watching. Expecting more films from the new director
