      If Indian military and patriotic sensationalists can get past their egocentric views about the themes that were touched on in the film about the military occupation of Kashmir and their widely acclaimed and more than well sourced methods of dealing with prisoners - the Indian audience can really appreciate such a quality film that has been made, a movie I feel miles ahead of any Indian film that has been made and has surped the Bollywood genre on so many cinematic level. This movie deserves so much more credit, a delicate and superior masterpiece with the acting and directing completing each other on the highest level.
