Ankhon Dekhi - External Reviews

wogma rating: Add to 'must watch' list (?)
quick review:

A lovely ensemble cast brings alive a strange little tale that spawns many philosophical questions, that may or may not be of importance in the larger scheme of existence. Rajat Kapoor’s Ankhon Dekhi is a bittersweet little film filled with texture and life.
