I saw this film at the recent Worldfest Houston on Sunday night. I had earlier seen the trailers and had anticipated a song and dance film. What I got was beyond expectation. Shot in Calcutta, the city of Mother Teresa, this uplifting story revolves around three teenage girls who make their ends meet by singing on the street, a shoeshine kid who loves to play the harmonica, a little baby whose uncle was put in jail by corrupt cops, and a couple of record producers from America who are looking for raw talent. When the girls witness a murder, they immediately become target of a drug-lord who in turn is being sought by the police force. The story shows how the street kids protect each other through their love, faith and friendship. The beautifully written story was enhanced by an extremely energetic filmmaking style and captured by a brilliant piece of cinematography thats rich in color and texture. Music was captivating and editing was fantastic. The language being English helped me concentrate on the film and I fell in love with the city. Now I definitely want to go to Calcutta and experience it. The film interweaves the story of all the different class systems prevalent in India. The film is 2 hour long but it is so fast paced that when it ends, I wanted to see more. Everyone in the audience connected with the characters. The vulnerability of the kids wanted us to protect them from the bad guys. Dialogues were funny yet meaningful. We really enjoyed the film. All through the script, there was subtle messages that cannot be overlooked especially in today's violent society. The film was worth its wait and definitely a must-see for everyone.
