Arun Singhs Qissa is a v powerful film with overall terrific performances. Frightening how deep d roots of Patriarchy are .Deeply disturbing— Azmi Shabana (@AzmiShabana) February 20, 2015
Arun Singhs direction is masterful n restrained. He shows how suggested violence is far more chilling than graphic depictions of it #Qissa— Azmi Shabana (@AzmiShabana) February 20, 2015
