Time and again, I kept thinking about the wince-inducing old-fashioned-ness of the storytelling. Shamsuddin is in the hospital, and his father has to sign consent papers for a surgery. CUT TO: a happier time when Shamsuddin asked his father to sign his cricket bat. We are meant to weep and say somet...(more)
