A film that can make a dead man back to life
7 July 2016 | by jithin k mSee all my reviews

I don't normally write reviews, I was not planning to write one for this. But after watching this a few days back, I couldn't help but write,this by far is one of the most inspirational movie you will see. I just loved the smiling face of our hero, whatever happens with him he has that smile and he has his companion. I would recommend everyone to watch this movie at least once, if possible more than once.

I am not going to dwell into the nitty gritty of acting or directing, because i found everything coming together in the movie. Best thing i felt was that it was all based on true story, it welled up my eyes and i was crying my hearts out all through out this movie
