On a sultry Sunday afternoon, I was hopping the TV channels and stumbled upon ‘Sardari Begum’ - one of the movies I was fond of. I started watching it all over again. It’s surprising how your interpretation and viewing experience changes over a period of time, for the same movie. Your interpretation is outcome of your current state of mind and being.
