Excellent story telling
17 February 2008 | by indogeniusSee all my reviews

If you are a devotee of Sai Baba, the movie is gripping. Even if you are not a devotee and just watching the movie, the storyline is gripping, and music is catchy. Acting is good and there are no dull moments in the movie. Considering that the movie was made in 1970s, the special effects are alright. The story remains true to the official Satcharit of Sai Baba, tough the producer has taken some creative liberty here and there. The songs are beautiful, and if you are a India-born baby-boomer like me, you would remember the songs from good old Vividh-Bharti and Ceylon Radio-stations days of sixties and seventies. All in All, it is an excellent movie.
