Either you turn it off after 20mins, or you fall in love and remember it your whole life
6 May 2019 | by SanDhuBoy05See all my reviews

This is a beautiful film. But you have to watch it with an open mind and willingness to grasp whatever and wherever the story takes you. Its the story of a deaf and mute couple who give birth to girl who can listen n speak and later to a boy whose normal too. Its a progression of their story. But yeah this movie isn't for your normal Joe's who just want commercial entertainment as the narrative is slow to build. I can say its a film of emotions. Metaphorically and otherwise, as the couple's disability makes them converse through emotions. Its the type of film either you fell in love with, or you switch it off after 20mins or so. I belong to the former as this movie is so close to my heart as a film and also coz it gives me that nostalgic feeling of childhood as I was very young when it came.
