When I first saw this, I had only seen a few Mani Ratnam movies and I really loved it. Now I have seen almost all of Ratnam’s movies, and I just appreciate it even more.
This film in particular apparently went to a bunch of international film festivals? The end result being, it is easily available from my library, and on a bunch of streaming websites. I mean, it’s also a really really good movie, but the reason I picked it to watch next was based purely on convenience.
The box office figures are sooooooooooooooo bad right now, that it made me think about why exactly they are so bad, and if this is a good thing or bad thing. And I landed on “bad” and also “it’s the audience’s fault”. So get ready for me to get deep and complex towards the end!
