when flowers are 'used'
23 October 2004 | by creative_chaosSee all my reviews

the humor, the camera work, the simplicity, good background score, well written scenes, everything was vintage ray.

these elements give all his movies an inherent class. but this movie was beyond the addition of these. the movie had magic.

aparna sen looked beautiful, her portrayal of a mother who is also a woman was first rate.

the scenes of pikoo with his grandfather were really humorous.

but what added the magic was pikoo himself. the simplicity of his character was superb. the last scene stood out for me, when pikoo, with tears in his eyes, sits outside the door, sees a flower in front of him and starts painting.
