User Reviews

 
Kudos to Indian Cinema
25 August 2013 | by cyberundertakorSee all my reviews

Rather than writing a long review explaining the Pros and Cons this is Indian Cinema which now is evolved.

Rather than pleasing the masses they have now gone ahead and showed the truth.

The beauty is that even when the audience knows that what has to happen in the end The director still holds us to the movie.

It can be said now that filmmakers in India can boldly make real-life stories without fear of controversy or censorship, this may be the best way to approach important stories that must be told.

A Must Watch film and good job by Shoojit Sircar.

Well Done Team of Madras Cafe.
