Amazing
11 January 2006 | by fuchsiaeyes37See all my reviews

This movie I have been watching since I was a little girl. Even though I speak very little Telegu, I find that I need not know how to speak the language to understand what is going on. My father and I still make jokes about little lines that I remember. I dare not type them, for I do not know how to spell them, only how they sound. This movie is truly amazing, and an instant classic! I love how the giant changes into so many different things, and the bow and arrows used. The stunts are perfect. I am in the middle of ordering a DVD copy, so I may watch it all the time. I fell in love with music after listening to the soundtrack, hearing songs that me and my father still sing, once again, not daring to write to words, because I don't know how to spell them.
