What do i say ? Bollywood keeps blowing my mind away. This is a wonderful take on a man's condition of not being able to face the fellow beings with his complexities. I almost believed the existence of the lead character. Wonderful characterization. In the end it restores the faith in goodness, hope and love. What more would i want ?
