This is a documentation of a situation of an underdeveloped country. The story is amazing, related to destiny, fate or favour of stars whatever may be said on it and is revolved around curcum-stances. The life of Jamal the principal charector is mostly dependent on his brother Salim's actions and so the anti hero is Salim not Jamal.
The Director needs ovation for his untiring work on the real life situations shown insuch a manner. The charectarisation of the middle aged brothers are superb! The saga is told in a simple way showing situations of Jamal's from his own life experiences which is unique in both style and form.
The film is just like any other realistic Bollywood movie but more bold to show certain situations which keeps the viewers absorbed. One thing is learnt from the success of the film in the International field that a story of any part of the world may get appreciation if told inthe right form with such inner feeling.
