A good laugh
5 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

I was reminded of my village in Goa when I saw this film. The characters were very typical to a village. They are always involved in petty politics and are very warm in their heart actually. Village people can be like that very funny and simple at the same time. My family saw it together and we all enjoyed it. My son also liked it very much. We saw it on the net but I am looking for a DVD but cannot find one. The photography is very good. And the acting is very close to the heart. Under the laughter we could also see the reality of a village life, the hardships, the big dreams and the point that there are no jobs there. We can have big dreams but we have to have the courage to make them happen.
