Excellent film to see ...after so many nonsense Bollywood films
1 October 2005 | by mark_personal2000See all my reviews

Once an English film director was reported expressing surprise why so many Bollywood films come out every year and almost none of them carries a story except filmy romance and skin-show. Here is the answer- Maine Gandhi Ko Nahin Mara, a film by renowned director Jahnu Barua. With Anupam Kher and Urmila's superb acting and Barua's excellent direction the film deserves to be a must see. Bollywood industry should produce much more films of this kind instead of its tradition of producing rubbish films. Direction: 10/10; Acting- Anupam Kher: 10/10, Urmila: 9/10; Story: 9/10; Photography: 10/10; Dialogue: 9/10; Music(Background): 10/10.
