Brilliant Performances
4 March 2007 | by raajkamalfilmsSee all my reviews

One thing that i liked most about this movie was some very brilliant performances by the players. The film somewhere lacked glossiness that all Indian Films required. The camera work must be totally ignored. The editing was good. However i think that the first half must have been trimmed a little. Too much of explanations did not required.

The second half was good enough and racy. The story telling and direction was simple and good enough. According to me the performance of all the actors especially Hrishitaa Bhatt was daring! The actor who performed Jigyaasa's Mother was simply superb. This film also reminds you of GIA somewhere. But here we get to see the life of a Super Star and in GIA we saw the life of a Super Model. This film also have shades of late actress Jean Seberg. But it is clearly not mentioned i suppose.

A good film with some Brilliant Performances!
