Storyline

This independent Indian debut is a film whose story tells of the death of a loved one and takes its characters along a path which will ultimately enable them to grasp the meaning of human existence and the universe as a whole. The tormented protagonist searches for the meaning of life in books. In one that he buys in a bazaar, he finds a marked passage that paints a precise picture of his situation. The address of the book's previous owner is written inside and the hero sets out to find him. He turns out to be the equable owner of a restaurant situated on a sunny beach in the middle of a captivatingly serene bay, who tells him that he was not the one who marked the passage. The film follows the journey of the book and its role in the lives of several people, tracing the way in which human destinies are bound together in time and space. Like the dialogues which abound in healthy insight and light spontaneity, it sees the Frisbee as a symbol of meditative reflection and offers ... Written by Karlovy Vary Film Festival

Excellent Film
16 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A beautiful, touching, literate, auteur piece made on a shoe-string about some of life's grand mysteries, like our attachment to suffering and synchronicity vs. coincidence. I liked how the director created dramatic tension, despite little on-screen conflict between characters. Viewers familiar with Georges Gurdjieff and Krishnamurti will be delighted by the nods to their favorite spiritual avatars. Non new-agers should be prepared for copious, albeit well-penned and performed, philosophical pas de deuces, falling just on the better side of pretense. (If you loved"My Dinner with Andre" and could stomach "Mindwalk" you won't have a problem.) This reviewer was also reminded of Herman Hesse's "Damian" and "Siddhartha," and Satyagit Ray, but maybe just because he hasn't seen that many indie Indian films. Not to mention, two great Frisbee scenes, and a sly, insinuating soundtrack mixing treacly western pop hits refashioned as profound universal- folk statements, with a delicate, sensuous score of harp and sitar, like master lovers of the east and west, mating in semi-ecstatic miscegenation., If you get a chance to meet the director, you'll find him as endearing, confident and humble as the Boddhisattva that he plays, in his first, remarkably-polished, film. (Never even made a short before, at least that's what he says!) So, see his movie and spread the word, if you like it. Maybe he'll get to make another one.
