After a long time, I have watched this film again on the digitally restored version. I had probably watched this for the first time on Doordarshan in the '90s. This time, it brought back many memories of India that was in '80s & '90s, when I was growing up.
The colour, texture & palette of this film seems so heart-warming and close still now. With simple yet thoughtful shot-taking, the film stays with you for its powerful plot, taut screenplay and some very good performances. As a child, I was shocked by its climax. That scene haunted me for a long time. I revisited the film for that reason also.
I feel good to have picked this film on DVD. NFDC has done a great job. The restoration looks very nice. The sound is perfect. Picture has that typical grainy film look of '80s which is very much acceptable to me (and needed too). One should not expect a full HD/1080p kind of restoration. That amount of gloss would have killed its actual look. Great thing is that in this print, there is no glitch or scratch. NFDC has completely cleaned them up.
Only issue is, the actual runtime was 111 mins. But here it is 106 mins. Perhaps they could not restore some badly damaged portions which I think is evident at 2 different places, where little abrupt edits appear.
But, that's a minor issue.
Buy this item to watch one of the best films of Indian cinema. Highly recommended!
Pavan Malhotra's brilliant portrayal as Salim ranks right next to his portrayal as Tiger Memon in Black Friday. The transformation of Salim..Rajendra gupta as Aslam are few of the highlights. Best buy for 179 and this is one movie which you wont repent watching...Go for it.
A fantastic insight into the life of the men who learn to survive in tough neighbourhoods. Their ambitions,view on life,stature,society are marred(in this case,but not always) by the environment they live in. It's a nice watch that may get you to start thinking...
