An unexpected surprise
20 November 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I started seeing Lessons in forgetting without much expectation, I knew the director as a soft-spoken level headed intense man who has a passion for cinema, but I wanted to see how he would treat the adaptation of a novel. I can describe the movie in one word - outstanding. All departments of film making have been attended to with finest details, kudos to the director.Music is fantastic, the voice of the singer haunts you even after the movie. Viswamagal Kitsu's cinematography, especially the climax is superb.

The movie takes the viewer through unexpected turn of events and brings to a breathtaking climax. This is how movies should be made, for a moment, I wished that the movie is made in Hindi with some popular stars (in order to get a wide commercial acceptance).

Viewers can view the movie in different point of views, I Saw it as a father's dilemma on whether he has taught his daughter right things or wrong things?. Some others saw it as a father's search for the mystery behind his daughter's condition. Few others saw this as a film highlighting the social issue of female foeticide.

This is a movie which can have an international appeal and lot of social relevance, these kind of movies should not go unnoticed and should be promoted by Government, NGOs and large institutions.

All the best to the director and his team
