A beautiful movie with a great message
8 May 2010 | by chopramoSee all my reviews

I watched this movie after hearing a lot about all the international awards that were bagged by the film-makers. But after watching Lahore, I realize how much potential Indian film makers have and Indian movies are not all about singing & dancing around trees. About the movie, I would say, watch it for story line which stay on track, the brilliant performance of Aanaahad and Farooq Shaikh, for the brilliantly shot fight sequences (rarely seen in an Indian movie, mostly they are over the top), good background score and lastly, but not the least, the direction and editing. Sanjay Chauhan has done an awesome job, the movie does not loose pace, the script is tight and the viewer gets engrossed very easily into the lives of the characters. I felt the start was a bit confusing (first 5 min) but once the movie unfolds one finds out what is actually going on. I would recommend this to one and all. If movies like this one keep on being made in India, we can actually hope that we can remove the monopoly of the Yash Raj type director/producers from India who think that an Indian viewer has no sense and will watch anything.
