Movie Review

My Rating: 6/10

Kalki Koechlin might be off the big screen but she has never stopped making an impression in today’s version of parallel cinema. And this, I would say, is the performance that many so-called stars of Hindi film industry will not be able to deliver in their lifetimes. Playing the role of a teen with cerebral palsy isn’t a mean task, but Kalki did not falter for a moment. Shonali Bose did a great job at directing the movie and trying to bring out emotions in the audience.

That being said, I think the movie itself was more like a collage of events and incidents in someone’s life, rather than a movie that wants to tell a story. Relationships seemed unexplored, characters were unexplained and contexts just didn’t exist. Speed of the movie, sometimes, felt painfully slow and pulled me out of the flow.

Good watch nevertheless.
