It is an overwhelming film. Haunting, almost. Almost like a real life documentary -- So realistic was the presentation. I have seen the movie at the OSIAN Film Festival in Delhi in 2005. Even after viewing other movies at this year's (2006) OSIAN Film festival this year I am longing to see this film again and again. A simple but socially so relevant film.
Would like to get a VCD/DVD of this film. Where and how can I get it. Is a dependable online seller available? Can anyone guide me. I would even like to see other movies of this film maker. I stay in Delhi, India.
