there has been so much talk abt this flick that i just couldn’t not watch it.
on the whole, definitely a good movie. very few mainstream bollywood movies that aspire to plant seeds of thought in the movie goers’ minds.
vidya balan – first time i am seeing her on screen and i am head over heels 🙂 haven’t really experienced the ‘springtime sunshine’, but i am sure it must be like her – bright and beautiful. oh, and the name jahnavi – beautiful. i believe it is another name for the ganga.
am not too sure abt the extra helping of gandhigiri and how it’ll work (more so in the media – everybody seems to be talkin of it). i for one, was brought up on gandhi. all our school text books, the teachers, the parents, the TV, made him sound like god, and for a long time, thats exactly what he was to me.
i grew up and realised there is more to the man then we all think/know. even now, i don’t know much, but from what i’ve been reading, i have this feeling he was a good man, alright. noble and all. but as a statesman, i am beginning to have my own doubts. only doubts, not convictions.
so i’m thinking i’ll do the ‘professor.murli’ thing of picking up some history books – not NCERT publications though, for they clearly present a lop-sided view of things. hope i don’t start hallucinating!
