For a film with so many Oscar nominations and an accomplished director in David Lean (Lawrence of Arabia/Bridge of a River Kwai), I expected a bit more than what I got. The movie was beautiful to look at but I just couldn’t really keep up with the lackluster pace and found myself eager for it to end. There was some overacting from the Indian actors and Alec Guinness played a strange character. I just found it pretty dull but still very colorful and nice to look at.
