Beautiful characterisation
13 February 2020 | by syhasinSee all my reviews

Honestly an amazing movie for it's time. The story has a great variety of characters that demonstrated the type of people during war times. amazing characterisation. You have two females with small children who are afraid to speak up, but still mothers who discipline and protect their children.A Hindu man with his blind father and grandmother, and is the sole protector. A German engineer who may be the only educated one in the group, but also the most entitled. A tempered boat owner and his widowed daughter in law. A maulana sharing different political beliefs but is kind and protective of his pregnant wife . Two drunk boatmen. And finally, a young naive but goodwilled woman and her strict mother in-law, and caring but pushover husband. These characters has such heart breaking and touching back stories. You can't help but understand all of their flaws, why they're the way they are, especially given their times and hardships during a war. And ofc, the freedom fighters. Amazing group of men sneakily protecting anything they can. Movie may be old, and acting and graphics may seem boring, but the story and history is captivating, patriotic, and heartwarming. Amazing movie, amazing plot, amazing characters.
