Critic Reviews for Amu
Less about finger-pointing than a plea for India to confront its past.
An admirable labor of love that stumbles dramatically but gets along on its sincere good intentions.
The flashback sequences are vibrant and intense, and the film's long closing shot is so dense with feeling for a nation and its people that Bose deserves to be noted as a filmmaker to watch.
[Amu] is clearly a labor of love for the activist filmmaker, as she breaks all the traditional inhibitions of Bollywood to remind the world of -- and, for most of us, reveal for the first time -- one of the most shameful episodes in Indian history.
Audience Reviews for Amu
An intriguing movie that follows a young woman's journey into discovering the mystery about her past. With a new friend in tow, Kabir helps Kaju try to discover the truth about the range of secrets that her mother isn't telling her. Her search leads to a shocking realization about her true identity and those she has long forgotten about.
Konkona Sen Sharma, Ankur Khanna, Brinda Karat, Choiti Ghosh, and Yashpal Sharma stars. Worth seeing!!
This movie is full of everything....a sad, but true story.
....this keeps on happening in other countries to this day!!
