Hi guys I went to see the movie last night...

There are very few times when cinema can actually touch you in a way that leaves you feeling overwhelmed and actually very humbled and that is how Waris Shah made me feel

I walked out of the cinema with a heavy heart after having been intoxicated by what can only be described as transportation into a world of poignant and truly meaningful cinema

The film Waris Shah takes you into an era that was perhaps renowned for its grandeur and opulence....the Mughal Raj...and although the sets portray this in the initial reels, Manoj Punj has concentrated more on his storyline and that is what is amazing about the film

For those who are perhaps under the misconception about this film being based around Heer Ranjha....it actually looks at how Heer Ranjha was created. The p***ion Waris Shah had for his work and the conviction...where did all that stem from? Waris Shah answers those questions....

You really have to be in synch and have an appreciation for good music to appreciate this film too...music with a Sufi feel to it...and no, it would be wrong to l*** this film as a musical which it clearly isn't...rather music being the dialogue of the film instead in which we can feel the exact depth that the story Heer actually has

Gurdaas Maan Ji...what can I say? He has given us years of amazing music...but with Waris Shah he has given us a performance, a film and a chapter in the industry which he will be remembered for in years to come...his performance is restrained and relatable...I for one could clearly see the way he had put his soul into the film as his relationship with music came across so beautifully throughout the duration...

Juhi Chawla...a dignified performance...a natural as always. It was especially nice to see her in a period film where she has played a roll in which she could easily have gone over the top and been the tragedy queen but here she is not only beauty personfied with her amazing face but also proof of talent personified

this is not a 2
Divya Dutta has given what I feel to be her careers best...as the woman scorned her feisty, salacious and seductive mien is just a treat to watch. In such a subtle film she actually adds a spark or two making her easily stand out...

The way the story itself is told...the continuity is excellent...no comic side tracks or unwanted songs...everything fits like a jigsaw...

Costumes are beautiful and everything has been done to create the period by a T. Reminded of the work in Pinjar...

The Music sounds fab on CD...but on big screen it is something else all together "Ve Kabootra" being my favourite...and the fact that the whole film is seeped in the p***ion for Heer, the way we see this conveyed throughout the film makes you realise just how in our homeland, music and God and spiritualism is all combined...

This is not a film that needs selling...this is a film that is to be seen by those people who are on a keel where they can appreciate the art and the p***ion one man had in his life and revel in it to be transported back to that time...

It is a film for those who can see beyond the surface of music and art and go to a much deeper level

For those who know the story of Heer Ranjha, they will know just how much intensity and earnestness the story has...well all I can say is Waris Shah gives us all of that again in its purest forms some many centuries later....
