Successful to elaborate female sexuality
6 November 2005 | by svs_25144See all my reviews

Amol Palekar finds a wonderful a story to bring forward the subject of female sexuality. There are not many directors who dare to bring up this issue, few to name Deepa Mehta (Fire), Basu Bhatacharya. The Art direction of this movie is very good as compared to contemporary Marathi cinema, and Sonali Bendre has finally shown that she too can act(besides looking beautiful), sadly in the later part of her career. The movies flows wonderfully well and shows, arguably, the narrow minded (in the context of female sexuality)nature of a male dominated society. The classical music in the movie enhance the quality of the movie and people who like classical music would adore it. Performance of Ananat Nag, Deepti Naval are second to none. I have voted it as 9/10 just can't rate it 10/10 I am still contemplating whats was lacking? but would like to see the rating of this movie to be little higher.
