| We Are Like That Only. ♦ 80%
It is as jaw-dropping and eye-opening as it is aesthetically & cinematically beautiful. With unarguably one of the most famous dialog delivery, by Sunny Deol, Damini is Bollywood's best outcome of the 90s about social subjects. "Aakrosh" was another.

With splendid performances by Meenakshi Seshadri, Sunny Deol & Rishi Kapoor, the plot is in two parts: the initial drama and the courtroom drama of which the latter is an ultimate entertainer. Talking through the perspectives of many persons, the film focuses on Damini's view on how social factors should be rightfully carried & pondered about. She stands for the truth and believes, as Gandhiji did, that the court of conscience is greater.

Running for 160 minutes, Damini never bores, in fact it asks us a question: WHY ARE WE LIKE THIS? Buying witnesses, using money to clear crime and why are women still considered lower to men? By the end, we just sit and stay baffled at us for being the way we are. A trend- setting flick.

BOTTOM LINE: Every person should at least watch this once and I promise it won't disappoint.
