The film can be a source of spiritual satisfaction for those who love spirituality and mysticism. At the same time it may be torturous for those who never sailed the boat of spirituality.The movie takes you on a tour to ‘Varanasi’.

Banaras..mystic lovestory told with a difference
Apr 30, 2006 10:33 AMRead
I happen to watch this movie quite late. This is not a movie one should go for if you want to enjoy some masala after spending 100-200 bucks, but if you are looking for some thing different, have a taste for spiritualism and perfect acting this is the right choice. Urmila once again proved her a...Read More

Spirituality couldn't have manifested itself in such a lucid manner. The last time I saw it on celluloid was Rang De Basanti a history that was so distant yet made so relevant and identifiable to today's times and to today's generation. This movie Banaras strikes on the same chord. Spirituality ...Read More

Touches your Soul - Amazing...
Apr 18, 2006 02:27 PMRead
Movie makes you think and think and to put it mildly without giving you all the suspense. It is somewhat like matrix, sixth sense and I think like those movies you understand so many complexes and how it has been woven into the story towards the end and you will want to see again because you rea...Read More

For connoisseurs of meaningful cinema
Apr 12, 2006 09:14 PMRead
In an era of substandard products, where the same thing is being churned out in a new garb week after week, Banaras dares to be different. Extensive detailing has gone into the making of this flick, which is evident from its plot, the setting, the costumes and the overall ambience .Directed by P...Read More

A thought-provoking film
Apr 12, 2006 08:53 PMRead
Refreshingly different ,Banaras narrates the story in a flasback mode.Shwetambari (Urmila), a high caste woman, falls in love with a low caste music teacher Soham (Ashmit Patel) while studying science at a school in Banaras. Soham is an avid follower of Buddhism and the teachings of his guru Bab...Read More

Unique film
Apr 11, 2006 11:57 PMRead
Banaras interprets the concept of existentialism with the help of a love story. It kind of connects quantum of physics to what the Vedas say.It deals with the relationship between humans and God. An atmosphere of unrest settles in the otherwise peaceful city, when Shwethambari, an upper cast...Read More

A novel story well told
Apr 11, 2006 08:25 AMRead
Banaras has a novel story with several poignant moments as its USP. A well-made film with a few loose ends nonetheless, it has much to offer as compared to the vendetta fares and mushy love stories being dished out in the garb of entertainment.Shweatambari (Urmila Matondkar) is the daughter ...Read More

Hard hitting drama
Apr 11, 2006 12:08 AMRead
A hard-hitting film, Banaras breaks away from stereotypes. The best part of the film is that it dares to be different. Earnest in intentions, director Pankaj Parashar weaves emotional patterns with his able craftsmanship.Brahmin girl Urmila Matondkar falls for music professor of low caste As...Read More

Firstly ,director must be complimented for tackling a theme that defies the norms of commercial cinema. However, in totality it does not make any sense.It is much more difficult to comprehend and understand the flick .Oh! what a waste!!Shwetambari (Urmila Matondkar) is the daughter of rich B...Read More

Many a times, producers bow down to market diktats and end up making films that are ancient history soon . But you do come across that rare film which lingers in your memory and remains etched even after months have elapsed.Banaras falls into latter !Urmila Matondkar plays Shwetambari a scie...Read More

An enigma called Banaras....
Apr 09, 2006 10:53 PMRead
Varanasi is an enigma. It is one of the oldest cities in the world. It is known to be the tip of Shiva’s trishul, a spot where a lot of dimensions meet. That’s why a lot of widows come here to die. Also, a huge number of cremations happen here every year . Tulsidas wrote the Ramayana...Read More

Full of artfully shot scenes, Banaras gives your right brain something to feast on, while the left tries to figure out for conclusion.This is a love story between a girl Shwetambri( Urmila Matondkar) from highly disciplined Brahmin family and a young musician(Ashmit Patel) from a lower caste...Read More
