Simple and nice concept. Great dialogues. Had the right approach. The idea that the 'power of education' can be a boon or a bane is nicely tackled!
But I can crib forever about the edit of the film. Felt as though I was seeing the first rough cut, instead of the final version... the pace is uneven, and even erratic. Needed to be drastically re-edited. The voice-over in the end was such a disappointment - it was as if, u suddenly realise that the film’s getting long, and so, lets speed it up. Either the voice over as a technique shd have been used right through, or not at all!
Characters are rustic &realistic... but not sure, the narrative did justice to all. Specially Divya Dutta, Ravi Kishan & Rajeshwari... Actually, I think its the 'voice over' that was more disturbing, than the 'character graphs'.
Also, perhaps too many issues were being addressed. The street play on Singur & Nano made the film contemporary, but it was completely irrelevant to the narrative.... no attempt to weave the idea in through any character. Even the snake man and his lost father - i agree they lent flavour and character to the film, but somehow, too much time was spent on them.
But enjoyed the fact that all dialogues were loaded... great satire there! Instead of being pedantic… thought they were all approached with some great humour. Also, liked the songs very much... dont think they're getting much airtime though.
So, on the overall, i enjoyed the film, but really wished it had gone in for a tighter edit.
