grows on you, subtly vivid with a brilliant story
26 May 2010 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie when i was in a mood to watch some light hearted bolly-holly cross movie, without reading anything about it. And at the end it turns out that I myself am writing about it. I haven't yet watched Satyajit Ray's "Apu" trilogy, but I have got a feeling that i have already watched him in color. The main strength of the movie is its unpretentious aura, wrapped within a simple story. What makes the whole thing grandeur is the dream like subtlety that the viewer sees through the portrayal of reality. Actors (especially Extras), Cinematographer, Musicians, Screenwriters and the Director have all struck the right chord.
