Some films are cults from the time of inception and they are meant to be presented that way. Anup Singh’s Qissa starring Tisca Chopra, Irrfan Khan, Tillotama Shome and Rasika Dugal is one such film. Our reviewer calls it a rare cinematic gem. It leaves the audience thrilled so much that your mind keeps reeling the imageries from the film even after you are done watching it! This NFDC’s internationally acclaimed film, was recently screened for friends from the film fraternity. Present at the event were eminent film personalities like Waheeda Rehman, Shabana Azmi, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Anand Gandhi, Ashim Ahluwalia, Goldie Behl and Swara Bhaskar.
The movie that has been doing phenomenally well at all film festivals, in India as well as abroad, was clearly the talk of the fraternity.
Waheeda Rehman, one of India’s iconic leading ladies had praiseworthy words to say about the film. “It’s a very beautifully made movie and everybody’s performance is absolutely great. In the beginning, oh my God, something happens in your stomach, churning like, it holds you”, she said.
“I am speechless. I think this is one of the films where you really feel the power of cinema and art because it precisely just renders you sort of speechless and you take so much away with you. Tremendous performances by everyone, of course Irrfan Sir and Tisca Ma’am, but I think that Tillotama and Rasika have outdone themselves and definitely it’s also the script that gives actors opportunities so it’s really the kind of script and film that actors would be really lucky to be a part of. I think it’s tremendous and definitely people should watch it,” said the talented Swara Bhaskar.
Shabana Azmi took to twitter to express her views about the film, she tweets, “Irrfan Khan is a giant of an actor.Tisca Chopra Tillotama Shome, Rasika Duggal give outstanding performances.#Qissa. Congrats #NFDC”
Here are some more tweets from the viewers:
While many in India have shown their interest in viewing this film, they have been finding it a tad difficult to trace the film online. So for all the fans who wish to watch this film you can buy the DVD or rent the video here but do not miss out on this cinematic genius!
