Two important factors made me want to see this film. The first one was that it had Brett Lee, the Australian Pace Bowler acting in it, and the second as it eventually turned out was that it was produced by someone known to me. So off I went earlier this afternoon with my partner in crime Ramesh, whose nephew had produced the film, to see it.
It is an Indo Australian romantic comedy film with an interesting story, great editing to keep it crisp and taut, good photography, some excellent acting and camera work. The direction is of a very high order and with that kind of a background, it has to be a great film. I would give it a five out of five rating and am amazed at the lacklustre response it has evoked among the Indian audience.
The surprise elements in the total package is the acting skill shown by Brett Lee and all the other names, none of whom are well known here. The humour is subtle and effective as is the script.
I intend buying the DVD when it is made available to see the film again and again. It was that good.
If you get an opportunity to see it, do not miss it. It is that good.
