A Good Movie
24 June 2020 | by hyperlocalnavadaSee all my reviews

Really, it is an interesting movie. I loved film making and also narration. In present sceanrio, many cities are crumbling..many cities are set ready to revamp..in a urban angle also story looks interesting. A common man who findng some ideas to overcome his personal issues/problems, at the same time he trying to find answer to society necessity also. yes, climax was good. I liked the protagnonist's mad idea. Lot of towns needed mad idea to its reselience. The music is good. beyond that Idelolgoy mirror, we can see the echoes of life. Being a barber, he is also searching solutions to live. His wife is also on same thought but diffrent route. Several cities, especially which cities built in the backdrop of industrialisation is in same scenario. a thought provoking movie. Congrats for both Director and Protogonist.
