Mughal-E-Azam is a classic, in the absolute form, there is no debate on this. It would have been great to have gotten the full movie with the Black & White version remastered in HD with all it’s original aspects.
S S Rajamouli is a great story teller. He infuses so much of passion into Baahubali 1 & 2 that it is almost unthinkable, to even imagine how such a film got made.
I watched S. S. Rajamouli’s Maghadheera and Eega before this one, and I must say with Baahubali, he really outdoes himself.
There are many iterations of Devdas all over Bollywood, and Anmol Ghadi is also one of them. The writers just switched Devdas and Paro’s affluence; in what results in an overly melodramatic adaptation.
Now having watched Highway after Tamasha, I cannot simply dismiss the cinema that Imtiaz Ali makes. I will make it a point to never miss his movies at the cinema.
Satyajit Ray is truly a master story teller; Pather Panchali cements this sentiment; it is a sensitive film about relationships and life itself. The reality that is shown in this movie is scary, it’s like Ray was just filming a common family and showing the world what goes on in some corners of the world, which they probably never thought existed.
