Watch A Prayer for Rain for the subject, if nothing else. And because in this extreme disaster, you will see reflected stories of negligence, cutting corners and exploitation that, 30 years later, still continue to be relevant
Sarit Ray, Hindustan Times

Sadly, this film does not offer any new insights into the tragedy. It could have been far more touching with a better research. Nonetheless, the performances and a decent screenplay make it worth a watch.
