After more than a decade, veteran actress Sharmila Tagore graced the silver screen yet again, with Gulmohar. The film saw Sharmila make her digital debut, and share the screen with Manoj Bajpayee, Amol Palekar, Suraj Sharma, and Simran.

While a number of users called it a ‘beautiful’ film, one went even so far as to call it the best movie of 2023 so far.

Many viewers found the family drama to be incredibly relatable. One user wrote about how the emotions, feelings and characters felt incredibly real.

Rahul Chitella, who made his directorial debut with the film, was lauded for his work. “@rahulchittella what a stunning debut!

Manoj and Sharmila in particular were appreciated for their stunning performances. A particular scene in the film where Sharmila opens her arms to hug Manoj, who plays her son, struck a chord with a number of viewers, and received special mention from them.
