Audience Reviews for My Brother... Nikhil

If you have a gram of humanity in your being, you need to see this film. On a budget that would be considered Draconian even by Indian standards, independent director Onir has crafted one of the finest movies ever to come out of India. Sanjay Suri's portrayal of a champion swimmer struck by tragedy at the peak of his career is nothing short of sparkling and the "supporting" roles of Juhi Chawla, Purab Kholi, Victor Bannerjee and Lillette Dubey would all stand as award worthy on their own.

If you only see one Indian movie in your lifetime, My Brother Nikhil should be on the short list to fill that spot.
