Photo: Oh wow. I've only seen two hind movies in the theater and a handful at home but I have to say that the dancing in this one was... rather strange. I kept asking myself why the main actor reminded me of Aladdin and then I remembered that Aladdin was an Indian prince (wow...). Classic story of romeo and juliet, lots of colors, dancing, exaggerated love, war, attempts at peace, betrayal, and pain all wrapped in one 3 hour movie. Overall, it was well done and I like seeing classics in different cultures. But - too long. We all know and love the original story, you don't have to stretch it out. So, see it? Yes (if you have a spare 3 hours) and if you don't mind reading subtitles. (It's really not that hard).
