    Subject: Commentary on Earth
    Date: Aug 11, 2003
    Sender: Dilip KapasiPrevious | Next

    Movie could have been much better. The author director can steal from the events that passed in India's history, and earn herself some glory. But the message the movie portrayed went shy of many things that also surrounded the average men and women, then. For example, Mahatma Gandhi got the most people involved in the fight for the freedom, then how did the doothwala, and the candyman remained free from such binding force, I could not understand. There were many movies made during the very time of 1940s. Kismet, Bandhan, Kotnis Ki Amar Kahani, Shaheed, and more. There is not even an occassional humming of any of the songs so popular during Swarajya movement.

    Yes, if one wants to just popular with rising Indian interest in bringing the realities of the past, nothing is wrong with it, but do a good job, at least. Yes, the directore let no moment go unseen in showing tabooed sex scenes. That is just another story.
