This is a "sweet" film well worth your time, but I couldn't get the age difference between the two main characters out of my head. And as sweet as it was, what would be the chance of any sort of long term relationship be between those two? I mean, realistically, back to the village? And how does he get to take so much time off from work, at 30 rupees per picture? Oh yeah, and when I was there in January 2019 MY photos cost 100 rupees each. Thank goodness I'm not a woman, lest I have to pay the combined white and pink taxes. OK, it's not about me, nice film. The silences were not a distraction, but an enhancement. The supporting cast was quite good too.
