Ravi arrives as a man, and unable to find her accepts to become an old carpet trader's brilliant right hand and near-fiancé of his beloved granddaughter Deepa. Fate makes her marry affluent customs official Yani and Ravi re-orphaned Deepa before the true lovers meet again.Written by
I've watched this movie and i've been moved to tears.
The movie is very over whelming and has some brilliant cinematography and acting.
I would've never been able to tell, if it was made by someone who's NOT Indian, if I hadn't known before hand.
It has some really subtle and powerful acting by Prashant and Tanishta. If it had been an Indian movie, it would've been a sure contender for the Oscars.
Whoever watches it, should be ready to change his mindset and place himself in a different setting - that of where the movie's placed.
I read the review above and thought it was rather pseudo intellectual. It seems more like he/she is lashing out with some personal vengeance to someone! Or maybe he/she reviewed the wrong movie here! ANyway, to each his own! "I" personally loved the movie and I've been recommending it to EVERY single person.
Certainly, a MUST WATCH
