Audience : This film is not for Commercial purpose , But for those who believe in creative Artistic Cinema – Yes Then Its your QISSA
Review : First of all , Let me make it Clear that QISSA is not a Commercial film but it can be described as Beautiful Artistic piece of Cinema. Irrfan Khan is a spontaneous actor and was versatile in Punjabi Jet Character. No words to describe Tisca Chopra , as it can be her another thrilling performance after Rahasya which is being appreciated by Masses. Actress Tillotama Shome who plays the role of a Boy is too good, at times we were unable to justice that she is not a girl.
Rating : ★★★★
[Rating is on Artistic Values , and Does Not indicates commercialism]
