Storyline

Krish and Meera, form a young Indian couple climbing the ladder of the corporate rate race in a nation hurtling forward at a rate unprecedented in its long history. Stressed, frustrated and unable to come to terms with the sacrifice required for success, they go in search of a legendary magical insect - The Great Indian Butterfly. Last seen by the unknown Portuguese explorer Carodiguez, in a remote valley located in erstwhile colonial Goa, the butterfly possesses a magical aura, granting immense happiness to the person who catches it. In the journey that takes the couple from the smog filled, concrete jungle of the Megalopolis of Mumbai through the little discovered coastal landscapes of the western Sahyadris, to the sun soaked land of Goa, the couple lose more than what they want to rediscover. It becomes a passage, which seems to travel with a metaphor of its own and an insect as elusive as a fossil trapped in prehistoric resin. Will they find the Butterfly? Can they survive the ...

Simple, Straight, Honest and Real
23 July 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Impressive performances.. Both Aamir and Sandhya deserves Kudos for their realistic and settled performances

No nonsense.. No fighting, no loud dialogs, no melodrama, no unnecessary songs.. everything you see is what the movie needed..

straight to the point.. No time waste, no loud discussions, content is realized automatically as the play goes on..

Simple narration.. issue and solution both were provided on one road trip, no deviation or side tracks..

Apt music.. Music lifts the mood of the situation and goes with the story...

Good dialogs.. Easily understandable Indian English, casual and realistic dialogs..

Nice locations.. The road trip, locations were captured very nicely..

Catchy photography.. This is another reason why you feel the movie so connecting..

Appreciative effort.. Need more to come like this

Must watch for metro couple..
