my brother nikhil [april 02, 2005] {official site}

The most tragic aspect of watching this honestly made tale boasting great performances was the quality of the DVD. Bad mastering, and questionable mix quality. Pity. Other fatuous mainstream fare somehow gets better treatment. Ignore that, and you have a good directorial dé from Onir, and a calm tale that reminds you (simply because of it s content) of Philadelphia (and its Indian cousin Phir Milenge). And Viveck Philip's sole melody in the film is a gem. The song le chale (in three different versions by Shaan, K K, and Sunidhi Chauhan respectively; there's also a version with English lyrics strung onto the melody on the soundtrack) is one of the best songs of the year. Keep 'em coming.
