NEW DELHI - Indian actor Rahul Bose, known for his distinct choice of roles, can’t stop praising Kiran Rao’s directorial debut “Dhobi Ghat” and says the movie provides a world-class feel.
“Just saw ‘Dhobi Ghat’ at a private screening. Take a bow, Kiran Rao! It’s one of the finest Indian films I have ever seen. If we keep wondering which is that Indian film that truly qualifies as world cinema, then our search stops at ‘Dhobi Ghat’ - poignant, touching,” Rahul posted on his Twitter page.
“Dhobi Ghat”, produced by Aamir Khan Productions, is one of the highly anticipated films of the year. Releasing Friday, the movie stars Aamir and one-film old Prateik Babbar, apart from new talent like Kriti Malhotra and Monica Dogra.
With Mumbai as its backdrop, the film traces the lives of four people from different backgrounds who meet each other, and their lives change as they go through longing, loneliness, loss and love.
Rahul, who has worked in international projects and been to many film festivals abroad, also wrote: “‘Dhobi Ghat’ has wonderful performances - prateik, monica, kriti & aamir shine with easy, true and layered work. Great editing and music too. (sic),” he added.
