At A Time When Mainstream Movies Are Boring, Cinema Company Stands Out!
25 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

So, I had heard a lot about Cinema Company & I must say it is one of the few watchable movies of 2012.

The cast might not be professionals but all of them have done a great work with what they were asked to do. Only the lead girl over acts. But that's fine. Mamas has done well with everything and the writing is cool. The plot is also inventive and out-of-the box. The astrology part might unrest you but rest everything's fine. Songs are average, and the climax is genuine. Some sequences may make you ridicule, but as the story progresses, everything will gel at the right point.

BOTTOM LINE: You may watch it for the sheer pleasure of watching something new and inventive.

WATCH OUT FOR: Prithviraj's look-alike!

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES

Language: No | Sex: No | Nudity: No | Violence: No | Alcohol: Mild
