Audience Reviews for Waris Shah


Here's an interesting movie that centralizes around one man's adventure into writing an epic love story/song. He meets a young woman whom becomes his every thought, and the two quickly become acquainted. Even sometimes, they are writing and sharing their collective thoughts on a poem. It is a pair of brother and sister that comes between the two. As his sought love is arranged to marry the brother, he is then annoyingly bothered and pestered by the sister. In the end, he realizes that the young woman also loves him but is doomed to stay committed within her marriage. He decides not to pursue it any further. Gurdas Mann, Juhi Chawla, and Divya Dutta stars. Worthy! Great music.
