Starts out decent and has killer acting from Riz and the two kids. Thoroughly enjoyed myself the first half of the film. Unfortunately everything unravels as the film tries to out-trick itself and go in directions nobody would have predicted. In this rare case it probably would have been better had it stuck to its roots and given a bit more to its audience.
