Storyline

VISHNU, a restless young man, itches to escape his father's faltering hair oil business. An old truck beckons, which Vishnu sees as his ticket to freedom. He offers to drive the antique Chevy across the desert to the sea, where it has been sold to a local museum. As he sets off across the harsh terrain, he discovers he's not merely transporting a battered vehicle, but an old touring cinema. Along the way, Vishnu reluctantly picks up a young runaway, a wandering old entertainer and a striking gypsy woman. Together they roam the barren land, searching for water and an elusive fair. The journey turns dire when they are waylaid by corrupt cops and a notorious waterlord. The key to their freedom is the eccentric collection of films and the two forty-year-old film projectors in the back of the truck. As in 1001 Nights, if the films are good, they live and move on. If the films are boring, they face death in the outback. The journey proves transformative for each of the travelers, but ... Written by AE

cinematographic landmark, India's answer t o 'el aura'
29 March 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

You were not forced to buy a ticket to this and neither were you going to the theaters for a women crying on the remains of her dead son/husband.

Road,movie comes as a completely basic story line that has Vishnu(Abhay Deol) as a boy who goes through a certain phase revolving around poverty stricken, starving population of the deserts and ends the movie as a man.

The others are cameos, Satish Kaushik carves the way with super acting amidst the most gorgeous the deserts have ever looked ! 90 minutes are not very long and Road is more than worth it for within a certain number of years the main behind cinema will shift towards cinematography and art direction.This is the bible for those days.

overall a 7/10 || 8/10 and a pleasure watching the closest Bollywood has ever come to "El aura".
