What are people saying?

  • Karthik's rating of the film Padosan

    A flawed film that at times is rather bad (the at-times rather unfunny caricature of South Indians by Mehmood and Saira Banu's awful acting) but has amazing highs (Kishore Kumar, Sunil Dutt). I can't be objective about it: it's a key film from my early childhood and god knows how often I have watched it or how much of the script I know by heart!
