I have heard good things about Parineeta.A french critic said that the movie is the best bollywood flick since Lagaan!If it is that good,i will be seeing it this weekend to judge for myself. :)

Yeah, Parineeta is more of a 'film' than a 'movie.' It also stars Sanjay Dutt.

What is the difference,phantom?
Oh, I just mean in terms of subject matter and style... from the trailers, it's more a of slower moving, "deeper" type of movie that takes itself seriously unlike a masala film like say, "Main Hoon Na." So in my opinion, the cinematography, the mood, the tone would probably have as equal or even more importance than the actual storyline. It's more artsy than commercial even though it is still a Bollywood movie.

I am not by any means saying that the more commercial movies don't care about cinematography or the like, but I will say just like say like the difference between literary and popular fiction where in the former, the language style, the word choice etc are far more important than in popular fiction where the storyline, the drama etc are more important.

But could be wrong, after all I haven't seen it... but that's what it parades itself as.

you're absolutely right, that's how Parineeta is.....men that movie was deep!
 
I just saw Mr. and Mrs. Iyer and wow! Probably one of my favorite Indian movies ever. I do tend to like the non-Bollywood movies like Hey Ram and Fire but this one just took the cake. Such a lovely movie. Beautifully shot, subtle... wow.
