Simple story as simple as Gandhiji's ideologies... nice work
4 October 2015 | by rajarshi-89011See all my reviews

A simple story, but you will go deep into the movie, from the very first moments. Nice arrangement of music, 3 songs appropriately used in the movie. And last, but most importantly, Surojit aka Kecho Das Gandhi, it was a treat to watch him on screen, he doesn't have that charming look of Darsheel Safary, he is just another guy whom we "everday-see-in-a-busy-traffic-signal", but will surely catch your attention when he starts leg-pulling his school teacher aka Vidyadhar Swaminathan, or in the conversations with his mentor NGO da, or the outburst after getting beaten up by political Dadas.

An honest work in contemporary times.
