I love the original song- Laaga chunree mein daag....
Shubha Mudgal and Mita Vashisht(the recitation bit) do justice to it
A rather soppy story it is lyrical in its look throughout. Very vivid colours- reminded me of Paheli in the first half. And anyway I love Patiala salwars.
Konkona Sen and Kunal Kapoor stole the show. Rani is like the current Sowcarjanaki - cry baby. Hema Malini's appearance was a surprise. Abhishek Bachan - just looking at him is enough for me- he need not do a thing- but he was endearing all the same.
Not a must see movie. But the family's response to Rani turning to the world's oldest profession was interesting and refreshing.
