Clever and Sensitive Film
21 December 2017 | by maitreydSee all my reviews

Railway Children has to be one of the best Kannada films made in the recent past. The director has done a great job in weaving a tight narrative involving good editing and a riveting screenplay. The child artistes also a do a commendable job, and the awards they have won nationally and at the state level are well deserved.

Railway Children's sensitive handling of difficult topics such as addiction, child abuse and child labour should be appreciated, never once does the film feel preachy or trite. I only wish more such films are produced by the Kannada industry.
