T-Meter Title | Year
100% Two Daughters (1961) The Postmaster is a fine piece of work: if it weren't flawed by Ray's usual cliche of a storm at a moment of crisis, it would be a masterpiece. Samapti is sharper and brisker; a comedy of love, in fact, conveyed in what is a generally taut narrative. - Sight and Sound EDIT
