I watched Inkaar a few days back and was I impressed or what! What a lovely movie. It was about how life is all about shades of grey. There's no black or white. No one is perfect and nor are we expected to be.

The best part of the movie was its unbiased approach. The maker didnt take sides and even though we tend to believe that one of them is right and the other is wrong in the beginning (because that's how we are taught to look at things) as the movie progresses we realize that its all about perspective. There are different ways to look at situations. You might be right where you are but the other person isnt't wrong either. It makes you think if you've misintrepreted anyone's actions before or if your intentions were ever misinterpreted.

The silliest part about this is that we conveniently make our assumptions. We don't bother to "discuss" or "clarify". This is where our big fat ego comes into the picture. We think its better to keep those emotions to ourselves, supress them and move on, completely ignoring the fact that they might just overturn things in future.

Just imagine how different things would have been if you didn't let your ego take over. How many friendships would you have saved. How many relationships would not have ended the way they did. So many, in my case, when I think about it.

The movie is a must watch. Ending the post with a few beautiful lines from the theme song -
"Dil pe jane kaha, ghav koinlaga, lafzon ne diye lafzo  ko daga.
Khamoshiyan awaz hain, lafzon mein bas inkar hain.."


  1. I would really love to see this movie. Also, you're so right in saying that things would be so much different if we didn't let our egos get in the way.

  2. Inkaar was inaccurate, ridiculous and did I say inaccurate? I normally would just let a movie review go because each of us has our own likes and dislikes but this film was extraordinarily stupid.
