This has stunned me!!
17 July 2007 | by prateekfigo-1See all my reviews

Well,I've got no words for it!Simply putting it,this movie would surprise you because you haven't even heard of the director Sudhir Mishra(unless you've seen "Chameli"),this movie will shock you because of its realistic storyline shown in a simple yet powerful manner,and it would stun you to the core because of its intensity and the rawness quotient.This was a story that was begging to be told.Despite movies like Vaastav and Kurukshetra,Indian politics was still not depicted as it should have been.This movie has broken all barriers.The performances have everything to write home about.Shiny Ahuja shines among all.Chitrangda Singh proves that a beauty has got brains too,and Kay Kay Menon is the dark-horse of Indian cinema,this performance tells the story.Watch this movie and experience it taking over you.
