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 Tisca Chopra.
"Irrfan Khan is a giant of an actor. Tisca Chopra Tillotama Shome, Rasika Duggal give outstanding performances.#Qissa," she added.
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.
