After returning from Mumbai to Kanta in Uttarakhand, Ramesh Majita, who lives a poor lifestyle with his mother; wife Hema; son Baju; and sister-in-law Deepa, takes on the job of a school-teacher in a building which is over-run by mice. He decides to canvas the village folk into building a Kala Kendra while his friend, Basant, enters his name in a draw to win a car.

He finds out that Basant has borrowed money to repair the car; while Jwar will ask him to drive the car at a competition to pay off the debt - to which he agrees - but changes his mind at the last moment. His car will then taken over by Jwar's goons for losses incurred, but Sundar and Basant ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

For a relaxed Sunday afternoon watch
29 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Well, the film is a simple tale but it stays with you for a long time. So it would be safe to say it is not that simple after all. There are plenty of rough edges but those give it an earthy feel. I felt that some supporting actors could have been better trained but on the whole most of them give a really good performance and the wife of Ramesh is just fantastic. I love the hills and it felt good to be transported there in a very real way. It left me with a feeling of nostalgia, a feeling that things are changing in our world a bit too fast ... and the desire to hold on to a simplicity that is conveyed in the film is something that everyone will immediately relate to. I recommend it for a relaxed watch on a Sunday afternoon and then again on the next Sunday.
