Danny Denzongpa delivers a moving performance as the debt-stricken Karma but he's betrayed by a screenplay that's too loose, and one that relies heavily on such self-indulgent tools as long silences. Director Shivajee Chandrabhushan has a relevant story to tell, but evidently, he has little interest in delivering it in a form that is accessible to most viewers. For the most part, Frozen leaves you cold, and chances are you'll need time to defrost.Two out of five for Frozen. Remember: go armed with lots of patience and a comfortable pillow.

This one's a glorious return to the age of black and white cinema. And surprisingly, you just don't seem to miss the myriad hues of eastmancolour. On the contrary, the film simply overwhelms you with its visual opulence as the screen lights up with one glistening frame after the other, capturing the ethereal beauty of the ice-capped Himalayan landscape on one hand and the irony of bullets, blasts and barbed wires on the other.The film's a tryst with pure cinema, in terms of its scintillating cinematography and lays down a strong plea for peace and harmony. Go for a different experience.

In Frozen, the first film opening nationwide in what seems like ages (but is really more like five or six weeks) we are witness to the life of Karma (Danny Denzongpa) and the trials and tribulations that visit those like him who live high up in the winter wonderland that is Leh, Ladakh.Though the director and his team deserve the highest accolades for achieving a film of this level of beauty in severely extreme conditions, it is unlikely that this film will find a mass audience. Connoisseurs of high art however will probably find much to appreciate in this sparse and beautiful black and white world.

Sometimes simple stories need simple storytelling techniques. Frozen, starring Danny Denzongpa, is the case in point. Shot in Ladakh in black and white the film tells the story of an aging father Karma (Danny) is working hard to clear his debts.Much has been said and written about Ladakh's landscape. Its starkness hits you even harder when you se it in monochrome. But there are times when the spectacle tends to take you away from the story.And that is what Frozen is – a spectacle that needn't necessarily have been one.

Unfortunately, as much as he captivates with his brilliant cinematography, Shanker Raman who also writes the film, fails to grip you with his disjointed screenplay. It’s not with the slow pacing or the conventional conflicts of the poor protagonist where he loses the audiences. The ambiguous culmination does more harm.None of the secondary characters contribute towards the climax making the film appear like a docu-drama about the hardships of a local from Ladakh. The repetitive facades of misty mountains and curvy roads add to the documentary feel.
