One of the best movies I have seen in the recent past
1 July 2014 | by (Delhi, India) – See all my reviews

Shakes you to the core and makes you present to the brutal reality many families had to go in and the aftermath of 84 riots. Whenever I see movies like these, a part of mine cries and the other one feels ashamed to see the lows humanity has gone to. It adds to the misery further to know that the reality is more brutal than what is shown in these movies.

Beautifully directed and acted by everyone in the movie. The songs are very meaningful. Must watch for everyone who relate to the cause in any possible ways. The story line is based on a true incident while we must note that there were many other countless such stories that actually happened.
