Osama -The movie

I have no connections with the Taliban or Afghanistan. i am an artist and am just appreciating a great piece of art.

This is one of the most beautiful movies that I have ever seen.
The story of the Taliban times in Afghanistan, where females working are against the law.
This is a story of hope... It is a story of despair..It is a story of fate..Its a story where marriages turn into death prayer meetings...

The brilliance of the actors are evident in each frame and is truly captivating.
A lady looses her husband to the Taliban and her son in the war. Thus she is left with no males in the family. Her only hope of survival is to make her daughter a boy.

Soon the girl, who turns into a boy finds herself in an unknowm world. A world of oggling eyes, a world of roughness. A world that is too mean to be lived in. She is caught as a boy to be recruited and trained as the next generation Taliban.

Accompanied by brilliant photography and excellent direction, this is a must watch for the photo buffs.

Osama went on to win the Best Foreign Film award at the Golden Globe awards in 2004.
