Subtle and heart touching
29 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

I went to watch this movie under the influence of good reviews and had fairly high expectations. This movie just stood to this test.

I would call this story as euphemism - a harsh reality presented in a mild way. Though the story is about two slum kids and the problems they face owing to their poverty, no fuss is made about their craving. Instead it takes shape of a story of their hard work and dedication to fulfill their desire. It manages to touch your heart.

Direction is just superb which is assisted by some catchy music. The combination of the story of slum dwellers with some peppy music reminded me of slumdog millionaire.

Watch it. Such movies are hard to come by.
