Q. 'Kai Po Che' Very few films have really touched my heart & this one really did. The narration is defined so well & there are some truly wonderful, magical scenes that it really has an emotional connect with the audience. 3 friends starting a new business. Ishaan's fight with kid. Ishaan & Amrita(bro - sis) patch up. Ishaan & Omi get together after fight. Hindu - Muslim fight where Ishaan get shot by Omi. Omi's meet with Ishaan(Amrita-Raj's kid named Ishaan) & climax where you cried was such a beautiful and emotional moment, these are the highlights of the movie. I even saw tears in eyes of some ppl after the climax scene. You have shown great versatility in acting, Omi's part wasnt so much defined in book, but you got enough space in the movie which was well written & wonderfully acted by you. Abhishek Kapoor has truly bought life into the characters & made you guys look really beautiful. One of the finest movies I have ever seen & truly I reckon this is gonna be the best one of year hopefully. Are you gonna be more choosy & careful now about upcoming films and scripts. Whose your inspiration? Asked by: SushantKoko
