A refreshing watch
19 September 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I had the recording of this from my HD device lying without me watching it for many weeks. I had no idea what the movie was about or who starred in it. This is a fairly simple tale of a man who returns to his village in Uttarakhand and takes up a job as a school teacher. The movie is embellished with many actors who play bit roles but they all add to the milieu beautifully. The movie takes a funny turn when the teacher wins a red car in a jingle writing contest which his friend enters for him. And from there on there are many funny moments involving him and his red car. The movie has its dull moments when in between the pace slackens and not much happens. But all in all a refreshing watch with a very simple tale to tell. The authenticity of the atmosphere, the excellent cinematography and Deepak Dobriyal make it a pleasant watching experience.
