Sensitive film
22 December 2017 | by raviraj-59719See all my reviews

Railway children very subtly talks about gender issues in the society. Prithvi Konanur's this brave film, deals with children who work at the railway platforms. The nexus between the local goons and the business of railway children. Konanur steadies this film with very intelligent sequences and a master story telling technique. The twists in the film are so surprising and yet so real. Film succeeds with natural acting from Manohara, Parimala and Yash Shetty. Please support this wonderful film.
