Kalki shines in the lead, Sonali made a beautiful masterpiece.
#MargaritaWithAStraw : A Sonali Bose film, starring Kalki Koechlin, Revathi & Sayani Gupta. The film describes an abnormal person's life, her relationship with her mom, her boyfriend, her normal friends, her foreign tour, her classmate, her gay partner, & at last with her, too. Sonali explains every situation very politely. This film is surely not a cup of tea for many viewers who love masala movies. This film made you to think, to love yourself, to enjoy life without any fear of being criticize. So, stop judging and enjoy the life! Surely watchable in the theater. But, only interested one can go, otherwise those kind of people who pass comments (if you are in this category, please don't go. Because you have to be keep quiet while watching.) may spoil others mood. So, enjoy the movie and at last, cheers to Kalki!
