Excerpts of the Reviews available online at Glamsham.com

POORANMASHI
Cast: Amrita Singh, Minisha Lamba and Parmeet Sethi
Dir: Meghna Gulzar
Adapted from writer Kartar Singh Duggal’s short story, POORANMASHI is about the mother-daughter bond. Amrita Singh’s dark secret is out in the open. But the villagers think it is her daughter who is to blame. It’s a catch-22 situation for Amrita. Her daughter’s marriage is already doomed. Can she tell the truth? Seeing her mother’s plight, and understanding the truth, Minisha (her daughter) sacrifices her life by jumping into the well.

Performance: Watch out for Amrita’s emotions when she is torn between the devil and the deep sea. Meghna Gulzar tackles the subject with aplomb.

RICE PLATE
Cast: Shabana Azmi and Naseeruddin Shah
Dir: Rohit Roy
This one's a cracker of a story with a super performance from Shabhana Azmi. It's about a Hindu woman, her staunch beliefs and her chance meeting with a Muslim man. That one meeting changes her perception of what she always believed. She begins to embrace life and society.

Performance: A sensitive story handled sensibly by Rohit Roy.


GUBBARE
Cast: Anita Hasnandani, Nana Patekar and Rohit Roy
Dir: Sanjay Gupta
If Shabhana Azmi in RICE PLATE is super. Nana Patekar in GUBBARE is mind-blowing. This is a different Nana in action. No head-banging, no rattling of dialogues, no spewing of venom. Just a simple man, carrying red balloons for his departed wife.

Performance: Sanjay Gupta springs a surprise with this one.
