Shwaas (Breath) (2004)
Critic Reviews for Shwaas (Breath)
While the film sometimes plays like an hour TV medical drama padded to reach feature length, Sawant achieves touching, naturalistic performances from a fine ensemble cast.
An old-fashioned soaper that will please or not, depending on a viewer's tolerance for schmaltz.
Mr. Sawant does his best to balance hopeful sentiment with the depressing prospect of a child's world going dark, and he tries to infuse this simple melodrama with a sense of tenderness and beauty.
Takes a potential hot-button premise -- the callous indifference of the Indian medical bureaucracy toward the lower classes -- and dramatizes it in the most shameless way possible.
The simple story strains to maintain a run time that is already far shorter than the Indian film norm.
