Anaarkali Of Aarah is a tale well told, says Savera R Someshwar. Oh, I so wish I could seeti bhajao. Not the lascivious kind. But the kind you hear when something good happens, when something applaud-worthy happens and you want to season that applause with a few good seetis.

Her performances -- on ...Rediff.com, 4 hours ago
