Veteran actress-social activist Shabana Azmi heaped praise on
Punjabi feature film Qissa, which narrates the life of a Sikh
family post-partition. She said the film depicted the turmoil after
the partition in a true yet restrained form.
"Anup Singhs direction is masterful n restrained. He shows how
suggested violence is far more chilling than graphic depictions of
it #Qissa," Shabana tweeted on Friday.
Shabana also praised the performances of the cast of the film
that included critically acclaimed actors like Irrfan Khan and
"Irrfan Khan is a giant of an actor. Tisca Chopra Tillotama
Shome, Rasika Duggal give outstanding performances.#Qissa," she
In the film, Irrfan plays Sardar Umber Singh who walks across
the border with his family including his wife (played by Tisca) and
three daughters. The film released on Friday.
