Where is the story?
27 April 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie is ostensibly about a father and son and the parallelism in their lives. In reality, there is much too little substance in the story to merit a two hour movie. The director seems enamored with certain visual and musical metaphors. It will not be unkind to say that he does not spare a thought for the poor viewer who has taken two hours out of his life to watch his movie. The acting is uniformly poor, and the fact that none of the protagonists can speak the language unaccented makes it worse. But in the end, leaving aside the overindulgence in metaphors and camera angles and the poor movement, there is just nothing in the story or the dialog to hold an intelligent viewer's attention for longer than 30 minutes. A poor effort.
