Directed by Mehboob Khan
Well, that was an ordeal. Not only was my version's subtitles so bad that they were almost laughable, but the film was about three hours long. Good thing I have an enormous amount of candy from today or I would be in quite a temper.
I was so confused by this movie that I am not even qualified to write a summary. Hell, I do not even know what genre it was. There were musical numbers that's purpose is unknown to me because there were no subtitles on the songs. The score a lot of the times seemed like it could be in a screwball romance; there was a lot of "silly trouble brewing" music. However, after reading the synopsis, this movie really is depressing as hell and not happy in the slightest. I am so clueless.
Well, even if I could understand what was going on, the film was way too long and the acting was only okay. We will just chalk this up to a fail and call it a day.
India's first Oscar nomination.
