No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
In A Peck on the Cheek, we get Ratnam at his best, albeit with a few glitches.
Director/writer Mani Ratnam has zeroed in on the Sri Lankan/Tamil conflict to demonstrate the consequences of political upheaval under the guise of social/religious/commercial progress.
Looks too commercially slick in its presentation to really touch one's heart.
The clash of styles works very well, and the uncompromising picture was a treat to see.
This lavish Indian comedy-drama is unsure of what it wants to be, but still manages to be charming and consistently entertaining.
