Definite Oscar material
8 May 2017 | by gene-21844See all my reviews

This movie is the epitome of direction. I have never been moved by any movie as this. Would have got Oscar if nominated. If you are someone hailing from rural part of India you can relate to it. It depicts struggles of typical rural brahmin family having aspiring doctor in it.Highly recommended for someone who likes classics.
