Thrill, adventure, romance and suspense, all neatly packed together
1 February 2016 | by murtaza_mmaSee all my reviews

SPOILER: Recently discovered Road to Ladakh on Netflix India. The strange chemistry that Irrfan Khan and Koel Purie share is riveting to watch: their intense love-making sequence towards the end of the film simply blows one away.

It's because of films like Road to Ladakh that Irrfan succeeded in establishing himself as a versatile actor. It's a treat to see him talk so less and communicate mostly through his eyes--a hallmark of a great actor. As for Koel, she shows us that she is actually a better actress than a television show host.

There is thrill, adventure, romance and suspense on offer, all neatly packed together. At a runtime of just 50 minutes, Road to Ladakh is quite a commendable attempt on the part of the indie filmmaker Ashvin Kumar. Highly recommended!
