"Western audiences get it. Some may crave more drama, tragedy, objectification of the Indian experience. Patang is not a film for everyone - it requires a cultural awareness and an openness to an emotional experience. You must want to be an active viewer when you watch Patang. It is not for people who want the obvious. The storytelling is subtle and gentle. It is an invitation. If you approach Patang with an open heart, I am sure you'll enjoy it." - Prashant Bhargava, Director of PATANG in interview with Filmi Blog. Roger Ebert writes, "The storytelling is effortlessly made, hypnotically beautiful visuals, a kaleidoscope of colors, music, faces and a little romance. Bhargava is masterful..." I am from Ahmedabad. I was fortunate to see this film at Tribeca after reading about it. I have lived in America for 20 years. I love foreign cinema and respect your reviews. This film is far more than an infomercial. I'd call it an anthem. Far more than pretty images. It brings back memories and offers all of us a hopeful message. Respectfully, you have completely missed the boat here. The drama has enormous depth and layers. I urge you to watch this film again. A beautiful and moving film like PATANG is a rare event. This is a film that should be seen. Please ignore this review and go see it for yourself!
