Children of War Reviews
There should have been more history and more competence in ‘Children Of War’ for it to be the film it had set out to be.
In spite of the odds, COH stands out for its earnest performances and thoughtful music. The film is tense and atmospheric. Wish it was more in-depth as well, given the gravity of the subject.
...a very sincere effort to tell the story but alas, the overall outcome leaves you a little cold.
It is impossible to believe that this war epic has been directed by a first-time filmmaker.How can a virgin artiste conceive such a vivid portrait of the rape of a civilization?This isn’t really a film. It’s a work of art, tempestuous and terrific.Yes, this is a masterpiece.
Do not watch Children of War if you are looking for a dose of entertainment. Watch it to understand what could have caused one of the world's most painful struggles for independence.
Like Madras Cafe last year, Children of War is a welcome indication that some Hindi filmmakers are starting to look outside India for stories. That Devvrat tackles his subject head-on is something else to feel encouraged about.
The magnitude of brutality and shock is always amplified if preceded by brighter times, but in Children Of War, there is rarely any cause for hope or joy and sadness is only succeeded by further despair. I recommend its power to feel alive, but this isn't for the faint-hearted.
A worthy film based on fact, but lacking the zing of good fiction.
