James: A man prays to God for 50 years. The same prayer every night. "God, please let me win the lottery". Year after year after year after year. "Please God, let me win the lottery". And finally, an angel goes to God and says: "God, this man has been praying so long. Why don't you let him win?" You know what God says? God says: "I'd love to help him out. I'd love to help him out. But he has never bought a lottery ticket".

When he got a rare second change to start over the life!
4 November 2017 | by Reno-RanganSee all my reviews

The intention was good, but the film was not made right way to enjoy. Of course the story, the setting were not cheerful kind, but too slow, silent, dragged scenes, all made it even worse. Watching it from the beginning to the beginning of the final segment was challenging. Only at the final few minutes it all made sense. I thought at least it ended better.

A blind man happily married with a kid, one day wakes up in the morning with a miracle. He regained his vision, following that, all the sudden his life getting changed. That also leads him over taking some tough decisions. With his new lease of life, he has shaped his life as he wanted. Now a fresh trouble surfaces and its consequences are hard hitting. What his choices and how the story ends are the remaining parts.

Dan Stevens was good. You could say it was a one man show. But as I said, the screenplay lacked pace, as well as guessable overall storyline. Which makes it not for everybody. The rest of the cast was good, and so the direction. I don't dislike it, I just did not enjoy it, I got bored of it in parts. One time watchable film for the selected ones, but being not dozed off while watching it is what they have to look out for.
