A film about desires and the yearning for the unattainable, Half Ticket is a story of two slum kids who are fascinated with the arrival of a new pizza shop in their locality. Expensive beyond their means, they long to try one. But, fate has a different game in store for them. Weaving a story of myriad relationships in the world of the Have Nots, Half Ticket interlaces the story of the kids' desires for a Pizza with a mother's desire to bring her husband back home and a low-rent thug's desire for easy money. The film also metaphorically accounts the world of the 'Haves' and their desire for the little things in lives that eludes them and the desires invoked by television, which teaches us to salivate over things we never knew, otherwise existed. ln a world divided, the desires explored through the film showcase a world filled with expectations and aspirations - an entry ticket to an Exclusive Club.

Touches and disturbs you!
11 September 2018 | by omkar1984See all my reviews

What I liked: 1. The theme of the movie is simple and humble desires of underprivileged kids which are similar to the kids who belong to well-to-do families. The portrayal of the hardships of the slum dwellers doesn't overshadow the theme 2. Actors have done their part well and the make-up artists and the director deserve an applause for ensuring that the actors look authentic, real-life characters 3. The abhorrent dispositions of the different sections of the society towards weak and underprivileged section is highlighted via several scenes e.g: the brothers offered a leftover piece of pizza by their affluent acquaintance, a lawyer minting money out of the impoverished family, the pizza store manager slapping the boy without getting the facts straight 4. The writer has refrained from ending the film on an unrealistic, happy ending. While the end is still unconvincing, it's far better than showing 'and the kids lived happily ever after'

What I didn't like: 1. The lyrics are inept. The original compositions of G.V Prakash Kumar are kept intact but the lyrics simply don't fit in! 2. The film gets sloppy, throughout it's length e.g: The repeated display of kids hating their absentee(detained) father, the frequent scene of the drunkard trio(two idlers and a scrap dealer), there's money enough to feed milk to the dog but not to buy even two eggs for the kids and so on

If you prefer to get disturbed by the clichéd plots and presentation of India's darker side, this movie is for you.
