An Indian comedy full of emotional depth and understated paradox.

This beautifully rendered Indian arthouse film, the debut of young director Shubhashish Bhutiani, enacts a subtle family comedy-drama that anyone who has spent time with an ageing parent could relate to easily.

Engaging in a different kind of tension, [Bhutiani] crafts a modest yet spiritually inspiring story...

The father-son bond dominates this bittersweet tale, which is not only impeccably played by a fine cast, but also beautifully designed.

Quietly profound, very moving, very engaging and made me feel like I was in a kind of magical bubble and when cinema works at it best, that's what it does.
