Speechless!!!
25 October 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Having music as a theme to the movie and having a look at the average user ratings I was very excited to watch this movie.

When I started watching this film I got a feeling that its one of those slow emotional films where one guy is a victim to some illness & the whole story is about his family whining for his troubles.

But, this feeling was very short. As the movie progressed, I could link the father-son character with my life. Even my dad & I face the similar kind of differences in opinion and taste as it has been portrayed in the movie.

The setting is beautiful & has been magnificently portrayed J.K.Simmons & Lou Taylor Pucci..

Very rarely do I rate a movie 10/10. I was thinking of giving it a nine by the time the movie was going to end as irrespective of the ending it was a very beautiful movie.

The extra one point is courtesy the ending. Tears never stopped while I watched the ending.

This movie has taught me to respect the differences that my father & have & perhaps much more than that can be explained in words...

The Music Never Stopped!!!
