This was the first PTA film I had ever seen. Admittedly, I did not like it much at all the first time around. Since then, I have seen all of PTA's filmography and I have a much better grasp on him as a director.
This time around my feelings have not changed much. I certainly appreciate the film now more than I did before. From a technical standpoint, it's top-notch. It's also beautifully filmed. But I still can't say I liked the movie. While the performances are top notch, I was bored to death watching. I was not interested in the story whatsoever. I didn't care about anything going on. Perhaps one day I'll get it, but for now this is my least favorite PTA film :(
