Good story and direction
22 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of those sweet movies which, at the same time, also provoke you to think. The central theme of the movie is around an AIDS center which takes care of afflicted children and adults. It talks about living in the moment, in the present, today rather than worry about 'the might have beens' or the future. The story is told very poignantly without being melodramatic or overtly emotional at any point. The acting from Nandita Das and Rajit Kapoor is first rate. Anupam Kher is OK - I don't think he gets into the skin of the character at all. I personally feel a Boman Irani or a Naseeruddin Shah might have done more justice to the character. Renuka Shahane is great in a cameo appearance.

The only reason I am going to give it a lowly 6 is because of the poor music and the over-acting by the children (seems so '70s ish). The editing also could have been better as the scene transitions seem a little abrupt at times. Overall, the director seems to have good intentions and save for the few technical flaws, is definitely watchable.
