Not really a sunny morning...
One must have noticed that Most of our contemporary films are centralised on Youth, their concerns, their love and all. Between all the youth-centric films, It could have been a real good experience to watch a film that talks about the Oldies and their lives. However, the most important criteria for writing such scripts is a sensitive handling by writer-director team who fail to bring any novelty in their work for a film that could otherwise have been a real good treat for all the cine-goers who don't mind watching a serious film once in a while.
Morning Walk has an interesting story that speaks about Generation-gap, relationships and importance of family in one's life. But unfortunately, The script tends to veer towards quite a many sub-plots that slowly kill the curiorsity of the audience who has just begun to generate some interest in the narrative due to its concept. It also resorts to cliches which doesnt help the matters either. Like any other film, Morning Walk too has its share of some really warm and memorable moment that will tug at anyone's heartstrings. But the rest of the narrative just fails to hold your attention.
What further spoils the film is its pace which walks at a snail's speed. Between all of these, Anupam Kher and Sharmila Tagore try their best to make the film watchable and almost succeed. Their performances are sincere and make an impression on our senses. However, Rajat Kapoor and Divya Dutta don't contribute as much as they are expected to. The rest are just about okay.
Final verdict :-
Morning Walk does have an interesting story to tell, but doesnt deliver it interestingly. Never-the-less, it can still be given a try for a few nice moments and performances by Kher and Tagore. Still, at Your Own Risk.
