The density of pain caused by partition and the human values lost in the meaningless fight of religions, Pinjar hits hearts with a bang.

A couple Lion colleagues of mine in India executive produced (or financed?) this flick. Partition and redemption.

I want to see this Movie

I had a hard time watching this because I kept not wanting to see hard scenes that I was sure were coming. In the end, I was very glad that I lasted through the whole movie, though it took me several days.

While this should be considered a romanticized (as opposed to realistic) look at the issue of displaced women at the time of the partition, it is nonetheless an important voice in the telling of that story. When you can combine that with a movie that also works as entertainment, you have done an amazing job as a story teller.

I had probably great expectations about this movie, because I was not impressed with it. The story is interesting, and I appreciate the way the movie portrays the implications of partition in every day lives. I also really liked the music, and the production is, in itself, a great one! What I didn't like much was the excess of characters, it took me several rewinds to distinguish between Lajjo and Rajo (even the names are similar, as were the actresses who portrayed them) The story is really about Paro, not about Ramchand as the movie description indicates, and the acting was a bit too dramatic for my taste. I have seen much better productions; so I am sorry but I won't recommend it.

A good attempt at portraying the scenario of partition, and at portraying the human emotions different people experience and have to deal with. Urmila has done wonders with her emotional and facial expression. This movie itself is worth watching just for her performance, if not for the script.

Overall: Must watch.
