    Gem. Yes, Bollywood is capable of doing this. Whattay plot. Yes, Premise is small. But, the thing writer/director wanted to convey is easily conveyed. Who on earth can think Butterfly as a metaphor!? Superb. Amir Bashir as loving, patient husband is brilliant. Sandhya Mridual plays a nagging, love hungry wife. And how? Koel Puri has got much to do. But she has done her job well. The Shibani Kashyap song could have been avoided. Little pacy story and this film was a benchmark.

    While the story and theme are nice, the movie's utterly boring. The narrator that keeps on coming in and interrupting the flow gets really annoying. It would be better to watch this as a play than a film.

    The tagline read, “Is happiness a rare insect? Is it for real? “ A tagline like that, I had totally expected a somewhat corny ride, but went ahead and picked out the DVD. don't get to watch hindi arthouse as oft afterall. So? Is the Great Indian Butterfly for real? … The answer was clichéd and expected alright, but I hadn't wanted anything mentally taxing so this fitted the bill. Dun hate it; it didn’t offer nothing new that’s all. The ‘narrator’ was kinda irritating though, with the philosophical-like bullshit he was spewing. And the soundtrack was quite bad.

    a slow movie, but a really nice one too. somewhat predictable but really beautiful!

    Beautiful cinematography by Shankar Raman. Script was very well written and engaging. I especially liked the realistic dialogues and conversations between the central characters. Background songs were a bit irritating. Sandhya Mridul was phenomenal. I would much rather watch a movie which has her rather than watching the current generation of so-called Bollywood actresses (I'm looking at you Aishwarya, Deepika and Katrina!!)

    This story revolves around a couple going on a vacation to reconnect with each other and for the guy to search for this butterfly. This movie is really about you going on an inner journey and finding true happiness within yourself. Not a bad movie however it was very transparent. However i think this movie would be good as a HSC text if their is a book and or a movie for the students to study on the topic of journey. I only gave it two stars cause the story and concept have done before and there was nothing new about this i figured out the ending with about 45mins to go till the end.

    A sarthak (meaningful) movie by sarthak dasgupta. An interesting quest for great Indian butterfly. the modern day couple in the end understand what it all means. what it is all about! a bit slow and boring movie.. but the message compensate for that!
