An overview of slum life from the monetary perspective
7 February 2021 | by ridi-arahanSee all my reviews

What worked: The idea of portraying the story of a slum family is a very nice concept, and widely done throughout the world. This movie deserves appreciation for doing the same. The aspect of movie that stood out was the cinematography, which is par and have captured the slum culture beautifully. It's a well acted movie and the dialogues are well inclined with the tone of the movie. The movie is an attempt to capture the story of people living in slum. Its not a happy story after all. It's heartbreaking at times, disturbing and emotional at other times, making the overall movie viewing experience as eye opening and informative. What did not work: Firstly I appreciate the movie showing the intimate scenes. A long scene was enough to narrate the idea of the intimacy but somewhere down the line I found it repetitive and overly done multiple times. If one of those many scenes were included it would have been a great shot. Also, the movie ends with a sad note which is not a bad thing in a movie but the overall mood was so miserable it made me feel kind of miserable and pitiful. The movie was predictable at times and disturbing at other times. I would have loved it more if the final scenes were a bit suggestive or had an optimistic tone because this tone has been done multiple times in cinemas all over the world. Final verdict: recommended
