Siddharth The Prisoner - External Reviews

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

It's dark and it's abstract and it'll make you think. What is it that will liberate you from the trappings of life? An outstanding performance by Rajat Kapoor and some thoughtful yet simple background music keep you company in this extremely slow-paced film.
