Very much like its title, the film is simple and sweet.

While Mandi it's not, Welcome to Sajjanpur is worth a trip, flaws inclusive, for its nifty funniness and curious concept.

Benegal's production is one that hinges heavily on its characters. From afar, it appears that WTS's screenplay is one that does not go very far. However, the closer you look, the more you realize that the film has been written like a web. Although the cen

Actually, Welcome To Sajjanpur is more on the lines of a Hrishikesh Mukherjee film. It''s not heavy on your mind, even though there''s ample drama happening every now and then. But everything is presented without going overboard.[an error occurred while p
