I watched this movie after coming back from work and God was it an awesome movie or what? :) Smita Patil is mindblowing in this movie and no wonder she got a National award for this and Shyam Benegal has rocked too. Its a total offbeat movie and well ahead of its time. Smita Patil has gotten into each of her characters in a very brilliant way and she looked G-R-E-A-T. My rating: 10/10 :) I was an Amol Palekar fan but after watching this movie I'm a Smita Patil fan as well!!
Okay just looked at Wiki and this one is really impressive and more reasons for people to watch this movie -
The film won two National Film Awards and Filmfare Best Movie Award, it was invited to Carthage Film Festival 1978, Chicago Film Festival, where it was awarded the Golden Plaque 1978, and in 1986 it was invited to Festival of Images, Algeria
Another scoop - Prateek is Smitha and Raj Babbar's son who has made his debut in Jaaney Tu Ya Jaaney Naa as Genelia's brother!! ;)
