Cine Montage : Screening of 'The Salesman"

Members present at the screening of Iranian flick "The Salesman" at Cine Montage Society, Nagpur.
Last Sunday I attended one of the film screenings with Cine Montage film society. The movie of the day was 'The Salesman'. Being an Oscar award winning film I had already a great deal of expectations from the movie. But, I can safely say that the film surpassed most of my expectations and delivered much more than I had presumed.
