An amazing first film by a 29 year old director/screenwriter/cameraman on location in war-torn Kashmir. Not explicitly a radical film, it has references to this beautiful country's war-related suffering in almost every frame.
The gritty tale, crafted in the social realist tradition, is a raw metaphor touching on the psychology of mass misery in that Indian occupied police state, where even the movie theaters are now expropriated military headquarters.
While the film's minimalist nature is its greatest asset in the first act, it ultimately makes its flaws and screenwriterly touches all the more apparent, resulting in some great individual slice-of-life sequences and some truly hackneyed ones.
