Great Movie
10 July 2006 | by kaustubhmogheSee all my reviews

Great movie. Saw it a long time ago. It is a movie that is worth keeping in your collection.

The best part of the movie is not its story but the way the characters are handled. But if you are in the mood to have fun when you are watching the movie, this is not for you. Watch it alone and you enjoy it more. If you are watching it with people who are more interested in the popcorn than the movie, you would never understand the movie.

There are some movies that are meant to be watched and some to be seen. This is a movie that needs be seen and felt....heavy huh? :-)

Happy watching
