Gentle art house put it is like soda missing the fizz.
Disability is a taboo in India. People stare, there are hardly any facilities and life is hard. So, I am glad this movie was made. It is a very personal movie for Shonali Bose, the director, who lost a loved one.
It isn't a coincidence that the protagonist has it easier in the US compared to India. If this movie helps people understand to treat others with humanity, it's work is done.
Let them have their freedom and their dignity!
Wong Kar Wai's movies look like poetry on cinema at times. The same can be said about this movie. When one of the two main characters walks with music playing in the back ground in a narrow alleyway, it 'is' poetry on celluloid.
Not all of the movie is poetry though. You have mundane tasks being performed. The sound design is extra ordinary. The direction is really good too.
If I had to find a flaw, I didn't like some…
