Heart Touching..emotions painted by Director..
26 March 2012 | by happy-smylzSee all my reviews

well..i would rather say that somewhere Bollywood movie viewers seek that tradition and that effect in a lover who lives in Indian family situations..after so long time i have watched such a movie that reminds typical fantasizing nature oriented meeting of a hero-heroin with yellow dupatta and a simple look most Indian girls keep in villages. Director had good sense of what to show to Indian audience,but typically a love story during the time when generation preferred action movies of the same actor(Bobby Deol)..is worth watching..the big hairs he had for the movie has shown that even he tried to do some emotional acting to show the shade of the character...a good place to shoot was selected by the film makers..
