beautifully done tale

This very colorful and often graphic film depicts the partition of India in 1947 through the eyes of a child. This is a must see film from Deepa Meehta who also directed "Fire". This is not your typical Bollywood film although it stars Aamir Khan, one of Bollywood's biggest products and star of the Oscar nominated "Lagaan". It's a beautifully done tale of love, betrayal and humanity. Through the eyes of a Parsee girl and through the lives of Hindu, Muslim and Shikh friends, we see how the partitioning challenges and strengthens their bond. If you want to take in a totally unique rendition of India's independence from the English, this film doesn't disappoint.
