Excellent and an honest review ! Basically you are advising people to stay away from the phone since it has too many disadvantages.I have of course heard many good things about this phone but it is good to know all the pros and cons befiore making up your mind on a market product ...

Shoddy job... I agree derebail it is nothing but lack of concern and greed that has led to this state of affairs. The ministers dont need to use the road they have the aeroplanes and helicopters .If that was the only available link , I am sure it would be kept in good condition since the VVIPs have use it too...what a pathetic state of affairs..Read More

CONTINUED.... is not one of his best roles, inspite of having the central role. However Dilip Kumar's understated expressions of romantic passion are to this day, exemplary and unbelievable...the verbal sparring between Emperor Akbar (Prithviraj Kapoor) and his adamant son Salim (Dilip Kumar) ar...e worth a watch...To this day it draws applause from the audience....(Indian way of appreciating an impressive scene) The ongoing real life romance between Dilip Kumar and Madhbala when the movie was announced and the Tragic end to their romance, due to parental pressures from Madhubala's side, must have acted as a tremendous publicity for the film when it was released. From the first frame to last, the intensity of the lovers' passion infects the audience.... There are some very fine moments in the film, a long drawn out Romantic scene between the lovers which has been beautifully shot.And what hits us, is the magical chemistry between Madhubala and Dilip Kumar in the celebrated love is shown through their expressions and eyes ... The famous and the unforgettable dance sequence of Madhubala was shot in the SHEESH MAHAL (Palace of Mirrors) of the AMBER FORT OF JAIPUR., where Anarkali( Madhubala) dances in front of Mughal Emperor and his court to the tunes of 'Pyar Kiya to Darna Kya, '(having loved, what is there to fear?' ) Her facial expressions are beautiful, and there is such tenderness and love when she looks at Salim ,and it is replaced at once by a Challenging expression as she looks at Akbar....a fine bit of acting by Madhubala This song was one of three sequences shot in Technicolor in the original version, while the rest of the movie was in black and white. To this day this song remains one of LATA MANGESHKAR'S most popular and much loved number..It has become a signature tune for all lovers... Dilip Kumar never gets to sing any songs in this film...The very famous Rafi's Zindabad zindabad yeh muhobbat zindabad was picturised on a Read More

Continuing my review on Mughal e azam.... Akbar declares Salim a traitor and sends a huge battalion to defeat Salim and bring both Salim and Anarkali back to the court, where they would be tried for treason... But what happens at the battle field as Salim faces the entire might of Akbar's army? ...and will Salim and Anarkali get together? This forms the conclusion of this epic saga..... ABOUT THE FILM K.ASIF'S direction is subdued and very individualistic.There are hardly any wasted words or scenes.He has used the actors effectively, by making use of their expressions rather than long dialouges or words.. And that he is a perfectionist to the last detail shows in every single frame of the film, be it the war sequences or the court room or the Harem..everything looks in place and perfect.. The story goes that Asif had a team of learned historians pouring over old Mughal writings and drawings , so that they could get the details right....the dress and jewellery was designed by royal jewellers from Jaipur and Jodhpur.... The entire show belongs to the Beautiful beautiful Madhubala as Anarkali.Such is her impact that all other actors pale in comparison except PRADEEP KUMAR who plays the role of AKBAR. Madhubala mesmerises the viewers with her blinding beauty and regal carriage.One wonders , were all the definitions of feminine beauty invented exclusively for Madhubala? This was the last film she acted in , and she was ill with a heart ailment during the last phase of the fact she died soon after ,at the relatively young age of 36....But what a swan song???Unforgettable... The confrontation scenes between Akbar and Anarkali are a treat to watch , with an Angry Akbar threatening Anarkali and asking her to keep away from his son Salim, whereas a hardly audible Anarkali, subdued yet holding her ground ,stumps Akbar with her simple logic about her own love for Salim and her feelings, and challenges him... DiILIP Kumar is one of India's GreatestRead More
