Star power, but...

TWO FILMS that are eagerly awaited are the much-talked-about Rituparno Ghosh's Bengali film Choker Bali with Aishwarya Rai and Amol Palekar's Marathi work Anahat featuring Sonali Bendre. Both the films spin a sensitive period-tale and promise some authentic frames. All said, it's the star power that counts. It kindles curiosity about the works that are to be screened with English subtitles. Sure, Ash and Sonali have the right dose of glamour and appeal. But what about histrionics? Have the directors tapped the best out of the duo for the epic depictions?
