Deep impacting drama...
9 May 2017 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I happened to find "Sold" by random luck, and after having read the synopsis of the movie, I decided to give it a watch, because the synopsis sounded like a storyline that could make for an emotional and interesting movie.

It happened to turn out that "Sold" was quite entertaining, especially because it was very believable, and it had some very convincing performances from the cast. Of course, it deals with a rather disturbing topic, but something that actually does take place around the world. And the fact that this is something that could very well happen around the world adds authenticity to the movie.

"Sold" is the type of movie that gets under your skin and sticks with you for a long, long time. And a big round of applause should go out to writer Joseph Kwong, as well as writer and director Jeffrey D. Brown for the result that they accomplished with this movie.

The cast in "Sold" really performed amazingly well in this movie, and that statement applies to everyone on the cast ensemble. I was especially impressed with Niyar Saikia (playing Lakshmi), as she at that young age carried the movie so well and performed really well. Initially I was a little bit hesitant about Gillian Anderson being in the movie, but it turned out that she surprised with her performance here. It should also be said that Sushmita Mukherjee (playing Mumtaz).

While you might be appalled by what happens throughout the course of the movie, remember that it is just a movie. But the impact of the storyline and the events portrayed herein have that much more sway to them as you know that things like this actually happen across the world.

If you enjoy dramas that are based on real life events, then "Sold" is definitely a movie that you should take the time to sit down and watch.
