Why we don't watch movies like these?
11 September 2017 | by siddharthabadalSee all my reviews

We talk about culture and our heritages, we talk about our great past but when it comes to movies like these which show us the mirror, what we have become and where we are leading, we start looking on the other side. This film shows how India has changed in just a decade or two. And it all happened so fast that we just could not find a balance.

Mohalla Assi might not be a technically great film, it might not have best of the actors or direction but it conveys what it intends to. It raises few very pertinent questions about social structure, culture, greed, religious sentiments and most importantly about human behavior.

Watch it. Offer it your time. Taste this part of India. You will not be disappointed
