  • ramosbarajas's rating of the film Umrao Jaan

    A complete spectacle. This is my first introduction to Blollywood so I do not know if the film is good or not, especially to Indian standards. There were many great moments and many that were not that good. At three hours, I get that it's a sight, but sometimes it dragged. I realized that all the music numbers accounted for 40 minutes of the film. It's definitely different, just not sure if that's a good thing.
