I really liked it -- I had some difficulty understanding the language behind the accents but that was a minor problem. Great movie -- and great dance scene in the end with the closing credits. IMO it well-deserved all its nominations and awards.
I loved this movie! I saw it and it really depicted India the way I remember it...only I think in reality, sadly, it is even a little bit dirtier than some of those scenes. And of course the actors had beautiful skin, whereas it is difficult to find one person there that doesn't have scars from previous infections or rashes and scabs from current ones.
