That old family bungalow

Jai Arjun Singh writes:
It’s sad when the films you’ve grown up with, the ones that form some of your earliest memories, turn out to be disappointing, even a little embarrassing, when you return to them. It’s like going back to that big family bungalow you remember vaguely from your childhood and discovering it was just a little cottage all along, with a smallish courtyard.

In this post, Jai revisits an old favourite, Deewar, and finds it quite as moving as when he first saw it. This time, however, he finds things in it to celebrate that have been glossed over, or missed completely, in traditional appreciations of the film. Read the full thing.
