Good Movie
27 September 2008 | by itbhu-saurabhSee all my reviews

Awesome movie, with a great Direction by Mani Shankaar. This movie is one of the brilliant movies of year 2008. There one will find good real life drama, after so many cheap comedy movies in 2008. This movies has some excellent matter in it. Some of the scenes are really touching, specially the last scene(rainfall). One will not fine n... number of songs in this movie, which is again a good part. Different from normal love stories. Technology level is high. Good to see proper usage of current technology in Hindi movies. Movie is close to reality and it reflects the real life of Mukhbir. Sammir Dattani has done a good job. Sammir has good potential and will have a long career. There are many things which people don't know, this movie covers a few of those things. All wells that ends well.
