Thank you for your comment Mr Chakravarti. Unfortunately, I haven't watched 'Z' and couldn't make the comparison. But will rectify that at the earliest.

Your reviews are generally excellent and your knowledge of cinema deep. However, in this case, comparison of Shanghai with the Costa Gavres classic "Z", on which it is based, would have been good.

I see & read film reviews as some indicator to or not to go see a film. most do the same. but i also read them to judge the mind & vision of the reviewer. as film-literary-criticism text. so don't know how to like by way of a thumbs up. have taken note of Deepa's sharing & will go see 'Shanghai'.
