Great way to kick off TIFF 2014
5 December 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I went to see this film because the last Kalki Koechlin film I viewed called The Girl With the Yellow Boots was very impressive. As was this film. It started innocently enough. Demonstrating Kalki's extraordinary acting ability.

The story was very precious and demonstrated how somebody with the lead characters challenges still strives to have a normal life. And id doing so it became apparent that even with her physical disability she is able to lead a normal and filling life.

Possibly even more so then people who are able bodied.

It we actually a very beautiful film. The film style which was very simplistic actually made it very believable. I will definitely see another Kalki Koechlin film and I can only hope that it is as good as Margarita with a Straw.
