Brilliantly encapsulated journey showcasing the Indian landscape and everything in between
20 August 2018 | by lakshyadheerSee all my reviews

The documentary captures a series of the famous railway journeys across India, and talking in brief detail about the cities and towns which fall in between, covering the history and significance of those very places while referencing the famous Bradshaw's Manual published almost a century ago during the British Raj. Highly recommended. Love the presentation style by Micheal!
