“I had almost decided not to watch this movie, what with all the people word-bashing its senselessness. But go I did… fortunately.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eYes, itu0026#39;s not great cinema… of great courage, making you cry… making you angry. But it is good cinema… and a faithful representation of the book. The book is a fairy-tale, simple to the core, and so is the movie.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnd who says Aish cannot act? Just look at the finer nuances of her eyes and eyebrows when she is required to emote, and you will realize that this girl knows what it takes to enact a character which has already been u0026quot;written aboutu0026quot; in a book. Yes, she underplays the role… but that is what her character is, right? A woman who is poised, but sometimes the deepest feelings find their vent. I am surely impressed by Aishu0026#39;s restrained expression of feelings… and people who mistake this for an incapacity to act, God give them the subtleties of discernment.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eGo watch this movie… not to come out exhilarated or flustered… but to enjoy a good fairy tale, for thatu0026#39;s what it is.”
