A great movie with an important message
6 October 2017 | by Catgurl22See all my reviews

I watched "Henna" when it first came out in 1991 and immediately fell in love with it. Even today, after all these years, it is still a very enjoyable movie, much better than the romance movies that Bollywood is churning out these days.

The first thing that strikes any person watching the movie is the breath-takingly beautiful scenery. The movie is shot in some of the most visually stunning locations on this planet. It is like watching a Monet painting come to life.

The second strongest aspect of this movie is the music. The songs are incredibly melodious and still popular.

The performance by all the actors is pretty good. Saeed Jaffrey stands out with his portrayal of Henna's father. Zeba herself does a very good job of portraying the naive innocent and sweet Pakistani girl. Raza Murad is at his evil best.

The movie also urges viewers to examine the state of the world and themselves. Can a few lines drawn on a map really create such hatred and animosity among human beings? Sadly, the answer is yes.
