Best movie I have ever seen
8 December 2016 | by asawadekar-nikhilSee all my reviews

Ventilator movie is indeed a journey of emotions. Journey which we all love.. In a single line I can describe this movie as 'No nonsense movie'. Yes, each dialogue or each emotion, gesture has a meaning in this film and nothing is just filler. We hardly come across such movies nowadays. Ventilator has no loose ends at all. It just keeps on getting in your veins. I missed my family so much while watching this film. If you are watching it, make sure you watch it with your whole family.

There are so many characters and all have acted well.. Frankly speaking, I haven't seen such a fantastic script anytime in recent years. This movie will make you realize that you definitely have to respect and put more time to understand your parents' view/their opinions. Hats off to Jitendra Joshi, Ashutosh Gowariker and Rajesh Mapuskar.. Tremendous job!!
