Well Deserving.
19 November 2012 | by (los Angeles, USA.) – See all my reviews

Reina (Dipti Mehta) is very passionate and committed. She wants nothing more than to follow her dream of filmmaking but her parents like many others are against this career choice and they would never approve of her chasing her dream as they want her to settle down with regular careers like a doctor, engineer or an architect. Story sounds familiar? That's exactly what this movie is.

It is a story I can relate to. Well, In fact I think anyone would be able to relate to. As a film student I watch a lot of movies. I saw a promo somewhere and right off it caught my attention. First look at the trailer felt this would be a movie for a different culture, but the theme kind of interested me. I could hardly understand anything from the trailer which had no sub titles, in spite my instincts proved me right, funny!

Life! Camera Action is a feel good movie that doesn't need to be complex, it's just fine as it is. The casts are all very good and they play their roles very well. My favorite character is Mike, hands down. Love both songs. I am a Korean-American so Indian language was tough but voilà sub titles helped. The story is simple but unpredictable at many key points. Ending is a classic. It works perfectly and the script is very realistic.

I saw this director's 4-minute movie Another Day Another Life on YouTube and was left ecstatic about the engaging visuals and storyline just like Life! Camera Action, made in such a small or (as they say in the industry) no budget. The tag line Even Impossible says I'm possible should be the director's company's tag line :). I couldn't believe for the way these movies were made!!

I can't recommend it enough. I am thrilled to add this DVD to my collection of 7. I am charged up to make my feature film. This movie has inspired me.

They deserve all the awards won! Congratulations to all. A great family movie too. I give it 10/10.

Tip: Don't leave until the last credit
