I Watched Welcome to Sajjanpur

and loved it. I have to thank Pallu for suggesting we go there.

The movie was satirical, witty and funny without completely letting go of realism. I don't know much about village life, but the sets and the characters looked very authentic. And for a movie set in a village and showcasing traditional and narrow-minded attitudes, it dealt with bold subjects like widow remarriage, superstition and - of course - dirty politics.

If you haven't watched it yet, please do!

I like Ms A. Rao and the other girl Ms. Rajeshwari, but haven't seen the movie :)

IHM: Oh, I don't like Amrita Rao much, actually. But she was quite good in this one.

Banno: I hope you like it.

Pallu: Was a great way to meet up. :-)
