Verdict – 1/5

 

Pros –

 

1) Effortless execution from lead as well as supporting actors
2) Shweta Tripathi – playing a character less than half of her age.

 

 

Cons –

 

1) Pedophilia is not humorous – irrespective of the context.If the director wants to play discount Nobokov, a half-hearted effort is not enough.
2) The sub-plot involving kids slows down the story.
3) Telefilm level material. Gross and disturbing.

DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

Verdict – 5/5

Pros –

1) Balraj Sahni’s screen presence
2) The way it conveys the plight of post-partition Indian Muslims ; without any melo-drama.
3) Great ensemble-cast
4) Positive Climax
5) Blunt and politically incorrect.

Cons –

1) Amina’s sub-plot ; Though Balraj Sahni is the central character of this movie , this boring sub-plot ruined almost half screen time of the great actor.

Un Ke Liye Toofaan Yahaan Bhi Hai, Wahaan Bhi
Dhaare Mein Jo Mil Jaaoge, Ban Jaao Ge Dhaara
Hai Waqt Ka Elaan, Yahaan Bhi Hai, Wahaan Bhi”
