Great Music, few provoking thoughts, lost in didactic!
18 January 2018 | by collinsenoshSee all my reviews

This movie is worth going to the theatre for Anirudh's music alone, Bjorn's singing is the highlight, and Jonita Gandhi lives up to the expectation. There are a few thought provoking ideas, extrapolating the advertising strategy a pro- capitalist technique and using it against the very system of capitalism. This is a movie that will stimulate a long drawn out contemplation of the society well into the following weeks. Nonetheless, I would reserve such ideas to a platform like TEDx, the message and the format don't gel well, the didactic script back-fires miserably. What's worse, is that even the message is flawed, if packaged goods are harmful, so are steroid- induced chickens, pesticide ridden vegetables which again is only so called natural!
