Sweeping romance meets Bollywood!
This is a "classic" Indian novel, a love story of sweeping arcs, of going beyond what normal Indian society accepts-- and barely makes it to the US rating "PG" level. Girls dance-- and that is best part of the movie, the music coming in a strong second, the actors in third, and the story dead last.
Better than I just made it sound, the fact that kissing is prohibited as "adult only content" and that the huge, beautiful sets are mostly wasted on a story that needs more meat on it, it's still three fairly good hours of movie.
A masterpiece! This is a movie to be seen. The music is enchanting(I knew of this movie by the music I kept listening to, way before I even knew anything of the film). The movie is really great! A beautiful tragedy, a good love story about a never ending love that consumes two young persons that never got to live fully this love. They get separated, one marries away a man that can never love her as his love is dedicated to his late first wife, the other falls in ruins in alcoholism in a brothel, sheltered by a courtesan who loves him though he cannot love her back as he is obsessed with his first love. A magnificient movie, every detail is well played off. I definitely recommand it. If you are to see only one Bollywood movie, see this one!
The movie is one thing if you are a Bollywood fan, or maybe just an admirer of the ravishing Aishwaria Ray: The story is of course another and the Indian way of story-telling is quite different from the one we are used in the Western part of the world. I have no trouble with either aspects !
However, the quality of this DVD is so poor(region 9) that I truly regreted not to watch him before voting on feed-back! I ordered yet another one - from another seller - with more references on production and so on...but I am hoping it will soon come out on Blue ray as wel, since this can only mean a real step up in visible quality. BTW...I baught it for my daughter who is a Bollywood dancer, so she was really dissapointed when the movie simply just stopped, now and then, just like an over-used dvd.
Im Caucasian, but I love Bollywood movies.
I would have given the movie 5 star rating, but trying to read the very fast subtitles made me miss seeing the movie as I wanted to.
Aishwarya and Dixit were Unbelievable beauty and the dance sequences made me have goosebumps!!!
A great change from English movies !!!!!!
I bought because i like it it had all the bwords in english subtitle but it could have had more song tilts and it was very well put on the dvd very clear and it could have been a little lighter in some spot so u could see the movie i liked very much .. al1 to geterher. it was very very good and i would buy again!!!!thank u for asking !!!
