Saw this last night and was bored stiff. It's incredible that so much can be happening and yet the story doesn't seem to go anywhere at the same time. The mystical powers are hinted at and then forgotten and nothing really happens making them seem pointless. Maybe it was meant to be symbolic of the potential that India never quite achieved post independence but it didn't help the viewing experience.

It does look fantastic, but there is nothing to connect you to the story and you don't even get much information from a historical perspective as it jumps about so much it loses its grounding on a scene by scene basis.
