I had heard about this film, so I had lot of expectations from this one. Though the film starts off a bit Napoleon Dynamite-ish, later it delves into Memento territory (or 50 First Dates to be precise) of memory lapse.
Without giving the story away, I would like to say that if you like living your dream, coming-of-age/high school films you'll like this - but Gachi Boy is much more than that! The wrestling sequences, the "fight-amins", the camaraderie between the characters is great. And so is the song during the end titles! Awesome performances by everyone! Highly recommended!
