| Simply Brilliant and Timeless
I recently got the opportunity to see this movie (was airing on a movie channel), and felt really blessed and privileged to see it.

It may not be a technically perfect movie, but V.Shantaram has crafted a masterpiece in terms of portraying the characters and the plot to the audience in the simplest way. The movie is high on emotions as it tries to dig into some hard to call humans (convicts of single/multiple murders) and a warden who believes that with forgiveness and love, they can be cured to live in a civilized society.

In a lot of scenes the movie uses metaphorical representation/dialogues to convey the underlying emotion to the audience and I found this to be very very intriguing. The end specially I feel is unmatched on it. Something that a non-interested movie goer can understand, and something that an enthusiast can really appreciate.

I think the movie is not way ahead of it's time, but way behind. Something like Ramayana and Mahabharata, timeless.
