Salam Georgia
19 July 2006 | by (Mumbai) – See all my reviews

A father leaves his village to meet his soldier son who is wounded and is in the hospital. By the time old man reaches, son has recovered and is sent back to the post. Father decides to join the army to meet his son. Film is a little slow and very predictable. Acting is fantastic and situations very moving. Duration of the film is very short. Its a fine film with good message and good acting. Very expensive war scenes. I am yet to decide if I liked it or not still I must say that the film is very relevant and to the point. It is better than most second world war films west makes in the name of 'freedom' and for 'anti-communist' propaganda. Watch it if you like subtle war films and not mindless action.
