  • Anugat's rating of the film Aligarh

    Beautiful, magnetic and realistically philosophical. The mirror view onto the viewer's souls is what's the BEST aspect of the film. If more films are made, talked about and appreciated in a Bollywood dominated 'Indian Film Industry' then one can hope for artistic and creative minds being given the financial resources to make more GREATNESS.

  • saptarshi's rating of the film Aligarh

    the good liberal ally! the tragic gay man! self congratulatory left-liberal dreck that trades in property rights based civil liberty championing discourse. the real giveaway is the invite-only all male lawn party with people spouting garbage poetry for elite urban queers.
