I rented this movie few weeks back, and was clearly reminded of certain movie I had seen not so long ago. It seems that the movie has been heavily influenced by Alejandro González's violent classic, Amores Perros.The movie has similar storyline of three characters and their lives, and how they get connected to each other at the climax of the movie. Well I personally am disappointed by this direct lifting of film direction and the narrative style. I have always been an admirer of Mani Ratnam movies, and wasn't expected something like this from the maker of Dil Se, Nayakan and Bombay. I would like to know if someone out there agrees with my observation.
