heart and humility
7 April 2017 | by rubysingh-41227See all my reviews

I watched this movie last night and fell in love with it. I have been thinking of this all day and continue to be moved and impressed by so many facets of Satnam Singh's life. This documentary shows a real and raw experience from the perspective of a young kid from India who has been given a great opportunity. The things that moved me the most about this film is how they show Satnam's strong work ethic, desire to succeed, humility, and pure innocence. You cannot help but fall in love with this kid when you see how tender and sweet he is. I love that he is so simple, but so evolved and sophisticated that he recognizes that someone is investing in him and he feels that it is his duty to repay that by doing the absolute best he can. It's so simple, but so beautiful. I love that he has a warm bond with his father and his family. I love that he is selfless about his success and views it as his duty that he owes himself, his family, and his village. It's truly a very beautiful film about a beautiful person.
