‘Pinjar’ Excellent Brochure:

To recreate the bygone era on celluloid not only requires moolah aplenty, but talent in abundance as well. PINJAR, based on Amrita Pritam‘s novel, recounts the painful saga of the partition to the present-day generation.

Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s PINJAR, produced by Lucky Star’s Entertainment Ltd., scores on various levels # The setting sets, costumes, overall look is authentic. # The story keeps you on the edge all through. # The dramatic sequences especially the ones between Urmila and Manoj Bajpai are brilliant. # The film has tremendous emotional appeal. # The climax will melt even the stone-hearted.

Besides, the performances of the entire cast is of the highest order

# Urmila should be a strong contender for the all the prestigious awards for living the character of Puro, the protagonist. # Manoj Bajpai has never been able to go beyond Bhiku Mhatre [SATYA]. As Rashid in PINJAR, he’s back with another swashbuckling performance. Another performance he’ll always be remembered for!

# Priyanshu [TUM BIN, AAPKO PEHLE BHI KAHIN DEKHA HAI, DIL KA RISHTA] is a talent to watch. People will sit up and notice this performance of his. # Sanjay Suri [JHANKAAR BEATS] is simply outstanding. # Sandali Sinha, who was awkward in her earlier films, is tremendous this time around.

# Kulbhushan Kharbanda and Lilette Dubey breathe life in their characters as well.

Cinematography [Santosh Thundiyil KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI] is mesmerising, transporting you to an era which most of us must’ve read about, but not witnessed. Dialogues heighten the impact of several sequences; it’s another highlight.

Last but not the least, Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi is a director who understands the medium amazingly well. He scales dizzy heights in his very first film. To sum up, films like PINJAR confirm the fact that Bollywood is coming of age!

This writer was invited for an exclusive screening of PINJAR a few days ago.
