He was sure that it must be the light from his room. He got close enough to make out where the light was coming from. It was a city in the distance. There was an entire city in his attic, and the lights could be seen from quite a distance. It seemed impossible. He began walking towards the city, hoping somehow that he could find his way home. At this point in the story he began shaking again. He let out a pained sigh and tears rolled down his cheeks.

It's got an acceptable length, fantastic acting and a well written story. The ending is one of the best acting in the history of cinema. Sylvester K Super Reviewer. Jul 17, I had seen snippets of Chaplin doing his thing but this was the first time that I had seen City Lights from top to bottom. Charlies charms as usual as his Tramp defies the odds for the woman he loves. Very memorable.
John B Super Reviewer. Apr 30, A thing of astonishing beauty. As great as so much of Chaplin's filmography is, I don't think he ever did anything as perfect as the final few minutes of this movie. Alec B Super Reviewer. Oct 11, She gets under the skin of her character so well, especially when she is sparring against Rajkummar, she simply ceases to exist as the person, but vanishes under the skin of her character.
The way he builds his character, starting off tongue-in-cheek, his story within stories -- symbolic of him entangling more and more in his own web -- exposing his vulnerability all with a smile on his face. It is a quality shared by all the accomplished actors in the film industry, be it Irrfan Khan, Manoj Bajpayee, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Pankaj Kapur, they tend to draw away attention from themselves. This makes you notice them even more. One of my favourite scenes in Kahaani is when Vidya Balan is alone in her hotel room, looking out of the window.
She gave director Sujoy Ghosh the moments he and his editor Namrata Rao needed to create that pregnant pause tying up the story.
Rajkummar and Patralekha present Hansal and his talented editor Apurva Asrani Satya, Chhal, Shahid with such profound expressions and still moments, knowing what the director needs at those points in the story. In City Lights, he works with Dev Agarwal whose minimal use of lighting and natural sources to create frames adds the right amount of grittiness and reality to the film, which has some amazing imagery of the concrete prison called Mumbai.
Producers Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt and Fox Studios deserve kudos for backing such a raw, visceral film. I have known Hansal for a better part of my life; we have seen both good days and bad.
