“In an amazing performance as the gibbering, lame Tehmul, Kurush Deboo could well be nominated for an Academy Award (Oscar), remembering John Mill’s Oscar for Ryans Daughter.” …..by Ben Viccari , the Editor of the Canadian Scene in PERFORMING ARTS, VOL 32, NO. 1, PAGE 15.
“ ‘Percy’ a sad little film about a gawky youth who seems to be a born looser, is a charmer. There is no doubt that the actor, Kurush Deboo playing the title character must have been considered for the acting award. He is perfect.” ….. by Bikram Singh, The Jury of National Films Awards in INDIAN EXPRESS, SATURDAY, APRIL 21, 1990.
“In a ‘Mamootty-less year’, my favourite would have been the painstaking brilliance of Kurush Deboo in Percy.” ….by Iqbal Masud, The Jury of National Films Awards in SUNDAY MIDDAY, SUNDAY, 15 APRIL, 1990.
“The cast includes Roshan Seth, Soni Razdan, Om Puri and Naseeruddin Shah, but the Scene Stealer is Kurush Deboo who plays ‘Tehmul’, a mentally handicapped man in “SUCH A LONG JOURNEY.”
……by the NEWS READER, STAR NEWS at INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL OF INDIA, HYDERABAD, JAN 1999.
“Well, Kurush Deboo is India’s Robert de Niro, he prepared so intelligently. He had 48 type-written pages of notes. Every gesture, every detail, everything he did with a choice that he made. And in the end it looks so natural.
…..by Sturla Gnnarsson, the Director of “Such A Long Journey” on STAR NEWS at INTERNATIONAL FILMS FESTIVAL OF INDIA, HYDERABAD, JAN 1999.
