Jovial movie about a tragedy that makes you feel good about life
11 July 2014 | by kushal_murthySee all my reviews

Based on story of a person who was falsely diagnosed with cerebral palsy. If you thought it is a melancholic movie then you are can't be wrong any more. It is full of jovial scenes and I feel it is aptly called Life feels good. There are scenes which will move you emotionally. Especially when the lead character views tragedies of his life as help that people are trying to do to him. It is in complete contrast to how people in general look at the happenings in their life. This movie will make you feel that life indeed feels good. I would like to make special mention of the lead character who has played his part to perfection.
