Storyline

A year after the accidental death of their father, three brothers -- each suffering from depression - meet for a train trip across India. Francis, the eldest, has organized it. The brothers argue, sulk, resent each other, and fight. The youngest, Jack, estranged from his girlfriend, is attracted to one of the train's attendants. Peter has left his pregnant wife at home, and he buys a venomous snake. After a few days, Francis discloses their surprising and disconcerting destination. Amid foreign surroundings, can the brothers sort out their differences? A funeral, a meditation, a hilltop ritual, and the Bengal Lancer figure in the reconciliation.

severely under-accredited
18 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you watch it carefully from the beginning with no preconception or bias the movie has immense subliminal humour and relaxation effect. It puts you in a pleasant stoned-like state if you watch it on a Friday after a hearty dinner:) Of all the movies I've seen this one doest it for me. You feel like buying a ticket - and going on a trip of your own. I do not like most of the actors but they have natural humour and played so brilliantly that I forgot the gripe. The movie does not force a sense of anything - you listen to the sounds of nature, the rural and the industrial landscape. The soundtrack is perfect. The 3 main characters are not successful or content with their lives yet they are forced to go on a "spiritual" journey because they once agreed to it (brothers). I imagine it is hard to market a situational comedy these days a la Wes Anderson, Cohen brothers, Jim Jarmusch with so many fast-paced bubblegum-plot flicks spewed by the industry. This plot would sound stupid if I hadn't known a family that did the same back when I was a kid.
