Trivia

The movie uses two Hindustani classical renditions. One is Siddheshwari Devi's dadra "Paani bharan aaye" in Raag Khamaj. The second one is Begum Akhtar's rainsong thumri "Ab ke saawan" in Raag Tilak Kamod which blends beautifully in the backdrop of Mumbai monsoons. See more »

A Piece of Art
15 July 2011 | by reesu_daddySee all my reviews

First of all this movie will not appeal the regular Hindi movie audiences who would like to see a hero and a heroine and a romanticism growing with elements of beautiful songs and music. Sorry guys, this is not for you. It will appear tremendously boring for those (Most of the reviews will tell the story).

Just change the setting and location, this movie will become a Hollywood movie (Art Type). There is no hero or heroine in the movie. It is a tale of 4 people, their lifestyle, and Mumbai's rapidly disappearing living history. The idea of the movie is little ahead of the regular audiences.

If you are into Art Films, watch this and enjoy every bits and pieces. If you do not understand art, please never try to watch this movie.
