I watched the 4.00 pm show absolutely alone in the theatre. The movie clearly did justice to the book even though two scenes were cut by the censor here. My eyes welled up at the plight of the sweet brave Hassan. Those who haven't read this book should see the movie and those who have will watch it for sure in any case.
I got a bit spooked when the lights went off just before the trailers began but all was well again when the screen lit up.
