It made me think about many I know who are like Raj or Vivek
4 April 2006 | by insights-1See all my reviews

My high rating simply come down to this. I would like to know what happened to these guys 5 years later, 10 years later and when they are 65. This is what is important to me. Does movie make you think? Do you think about it when you run into situation that are similar to this. This movie made me think. I know of several people who are like Vivek or Raj. For a short movie, it also covered lot of ground and film felt like a full feature film. Use of the invisible man idea, to get the two characters to start their conversation was indeed interesting. Director does a good job with memory sequences. The faded and antiquated look makes them more real. DThe director also worked hard to connect the dream sequences with what was on the mind of the character. all in all an excellent piece of work.
