Verdict : Watch the movie if 'experimental' movies interest you, or any new kind of cinema ________________________________________________________
Girish Malik's film 'Jal' tells the story of a dry land, and an attempt to get water back to it. But here in the Great Rann of Kutch water's not the only thing being scoped out. It's a story of people and how their lives are weaved together. Watch the movie if such 'experimental' movies interest you, or any new kind of cinema. In case pure entertainment is your drug, skip this one.
Jal was much loved in the film festival circuit. It's great that films like this one get to live their glory on various movie screens. Now, it's up to you really to watch, and judge.
