The film is an extremely slow, though a very well acted film and it is certainly not for everyone. Also a newcomer being in the lead role is not going to help this film. There are political issues, there are family issues, there are other issues which are solved through dialogues. There is too much poetry in the film which make the film much more slow than it should have been. One of the things which stand out obviously is the relationship between the father and son which because of the performances of Dhritiman and newcomer Ashrunu.The film is okay and relevant.
