Saare Jahaan Se Mehnga Reviews
The film has been written zippily by people who know this world. It looks and feels authentic, minus exaggeration. And the actors look as if they belong.
The film has some poignant moments, especially when the old father fears humiliation if they're caught and Puttan speaking his heart out on how inflation affects the middle class. We however wish there was no love track that involves Gopal. The film also becomes a tad theatrical and preachy in portions. Performance-wise, the film stays flawless.
On the whole, SAARE JAHAAN SE MEHNGA... is topical, relevant and relatable, with some endearing moments. It may be lacking in face-value, but you can't deny that it's an honest effort!
One and a half star from me for this extraordinary waste of time and energy. Those are two hours of my life I’m never getting back.
