    Based on the story `The Flight of Doves` by Ruskin Bond
    Certificate: PG
    Running Time: 134 mins
    Retail Price: £15.99
    Release Date:

    Based on the story `The Flight of Doves` by Ruskin Bond, Junoon is written and directed by Shyam Benegal. It is a Romeo-and-Juliet-style love story in which a Muslim rebel (Shashi Kapoor) develops a passionate, almost obsessive love for a beautiful English girl. This out-of-control emotion suffuses the whole story, from the opening scene of a fakir`s wild dance to the savagery of the sepoys as they burst into a church and massacre the English congregation during the East Indian Company mutiny against British Colonial Oppression.

    Special Features:
    Interview with Shashi Kapoor.
