A heart-touching tale of a girl and her lost puppy, another gem from santosh sivan
19 May 2015 | by nikhilraj1990See all my reviews

Rather than a review, this is an emotional outburst. For a long time, I wanted to express my feelings about this movie, but, as I watched this movie very long time ago, I forgot its name.

I watched this movie when I was a kid, I remember I cried after watching the ending. At that time, I was not aware that this movie was directed by acclaimed director Santosh Sivan.

In present time, where movies on children or their has feelings have became so rare in Bollywood. This movie is a blast form the past as well as a lesson for "commercial" cinema of bollywood.

Hats Off to Santosh.

A must watch for, everyone specially for fans of movie like Mr. India.
