Gives more feelings of a documentary than a feature film
7 November 2014 | by (Mumbai, India) – See all my reviews

Adoption of this film from the novel is not up to mark so most of the time you feel that you are just getting information rather than feelings the emotions. I was expecting more from this movie based on Raja Ravi Varma true life. Characterization is so crude that an English Judge (Tom Alter) uses more Urdu words in his sentence and with correct pronunciations of words with the Nukta sound. Raja Ravi Varma childhood was in south India but his Hindi had no dialect. I was unable to understand the main female protagonist Sugandha's profession till last. This film had need of huge budget but budget restrictions are clearly visible. Few scenes are really impressing. When Kamini touches feet of Raja Ravi Verma and tells her that he is the person who made God available for Dalits too by his painting of God. The colorful intimate scene between Raja Ravi Varma and Sugandha was beautiful and artistic. First half is very slow. Second half has some good moments. Performance wise Randeep Hooda and Nandana Sen are just OK. Paresh Rawal is impressive and surprisingly his dialogues are also good. Music is good.
