Dasvidaniya - External Reviews

wogma rating: Buy the DVD already (?)
quick review:

Quality of life certainly wins over quantity. Dasvidaniya has enough number of interesting characters that is played by a very capable crew. Characters germinate and grow in enough details for us to see the shades.
