Just a plain love story.
28 May 2007 | by ganesh kumarSee all my reviews

There's nothing so special in this film.In this 140 minutes saga,the first 130 minutes is something which we find in innumerable love stories(Boy and girl run away etc.),only in the last 10 minutes there's something 'different',a twist.For this,it gets so much of acclaim.Also,another reason why it was 'acclaimed' is that dark lights are used to shoot this film.(To give a 'realistic look'.) The reason is the loud manner in which each and every relative of the heroine talks.(Cannot bear it.)It's waste of time.Cannot believe that this is praised so highly.Bharat and the heroine look good though. 4/10.That's all it deserves.
