Sometimes life offers unlikely encounter in unusual way!
16 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

Hey! Want to hear a story about a Bangladeshi boy and Korean girl? Here it is. An unlikely friendship. What happens? I am not going to tell you. Watch the movie and find out.

What I am going to tell you is, don't watch this movie expecting all the usual outcomes that happens in a movie. Prepare your mindset to be carried by a beautiful blue ride of humane relationship and cultural encounter. Find out what life has to offer in a very unusual way.

Movies tell story. This movie is an independent film with low budget. But it is an amiable story about simple emotions of ordinary people.

Being a Bangladeshi, I might be a little bit biased towards the movie. But that is what I felt.
