Really ahead of its time.
12 December 2006 | by snehaldesaiSee all my reviews

I have seen this movie and still remember liking it a lot. Look at the female actors Parveen Babi,Smita Patil and Soniya Valia they were all ahead of their time.The movie most certainly was ahead of its time. I agree with Mr.Sarkar's comments. I have been looking for its DVD,VCD and CD sound tracks.I can't find them anywhere. One more such movie I am looking for is a Mahesh Bhatt's television movie "Janam" Starring Kumar Gaurav.

If any one has either of the movies, and / or soundtracks I would like to buy them.If anyone can tell me where to find them I would appreciate it.
