Netflix dvd was subtitled...EXCEPT THE SONGS!!!
Bummer as the guy is a poet and the whole film revolves around his reading, or singing, of his poetry.
Some of the strange contrivances toward the end seemed unnecessary - the plot was already dramatic and compelling enough without them - but still a really lovely film. And, in an unexpected turn of events, I really liked the songs in a Bollywood musical.
