Film reviews: 
<p> &quot;A pithy &amp; uncompromising look at the relentless guilt that follows invariably follows a tragedy. A haunting film.&quot; By Anjum Rajabali - (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0707304/) </p> &quot;Jagjeet is an beautiful and cinematic tale of an extremely important historical event. The story is told in an unconventional way by using memory, displacement, alienation...jumps in time and consciousness. I loved the way the mystery was introduced. Its beautifully shot, edited and the music is great.&quot;<br /> <br /> Shonali Bose, Director of critically acclaimed film &quot;AMU&quot;.<br />
