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.

  1. As I mentioned the other day – reading has taken a back seat (although I did nearly finish a cheesy one last night, randomly selected at library) – so has watching DVDs on my other laptop – something to have more time to do when I’m settled – “wherever”…

    Especially since I have decided to retire from formal study and enjoy doing other things… As one of my friends pointed out when I turned 65 – you are apprentice senior – so you need to try out new things, and learn which satisfy you etc 🙂

    1. I read a great deal too. I also find the time to go to movies with good reviews when they are released. I have a few multiplexes close to where I live and it is not too difficult to get to and from one of them.

  2. I would like to see this but I haven’t seen it advertised. It’s probably in rare and distant cinemas

  3. I have not found it. The little grocery stores mostly carry crime and car chase film that is not subtitled and I don’t know, Netflix might have it but I don’t have Netflix.

    I will contend myself if I can find Laagan. It has been highly recommended.

    1. It is a pity. The director of Lagaan, Ashutosh Gowariker has also directed a new Hindi film called Mohenjo Daro which I saw last week. I have not written about it in my blog as it is a Hindi film. You might like to investigate that too.
