Ventilator got a fair bit of publicity courtesy Priyanka Chopra who produced the movie, and of course it won quite a few awards.

It was on TataSky Film Fest channel this evening so I got to watch it. Surprise, surprise ... Ashutosh Gowariker the well known Bollywood director is the lead actor. Have to say, he did a good job.

The plot broadly centres around the decision of when and whether to switched off the ventilator of a man on his death bed and the quirks and foibles of his typical extended family - is quite different from most other movies and certainly from any Bollywood fare. The film is believably realistic for the most part and very well enacted. It did drag slightly around half way but picked up again soon after. Boman Irani had what one would call a surprise "guest appearance". That scene provided a healthy dose of humour and hilarity to the script. Boman is of course a very fine actor and it certainly shows. To give all the actors their due, everyone did a good job. Priyanka had a fleeting appearance as herself on a video call .. nice touch.

In summary, Ventilator is a good movie. Worth watching though it may not appeal to those seeking out and out entertainment.
