Simply Flawless
2 December 2013 | by ashishisinSee all my reviews

Name of the movie is MY PAPAROTTI. Its the mispronunciation of famous tenor Luciano Pavarotti. Movie is simply beautiful and inspiring. A Simple, Effective and Engaging film. "My Paparotti" is clearly a very standard and straight forward , never deviating much from teacher-student relationship. A boy who wants to become Tenor and a Teacher who is dedicated but not interested in teaching students of his class who seems to have no interest at all. I loved this movie because of 2 reasons:

1. Very straight forward approach towards the simple and real storyline. 2. Moments of comedy, action and poignancy.

A Must see film...Just don't miss it.
