Critic Reviews for Siddharth
Simple but engrossing, Canadian director Richie Mehta's Siddharth is the story of an Indian father searching for his missing son, and offers a window into the lives of India's working poor that goes beyond the familiar issues of food and shelter.
Tension builds along with hopelessness but Mehta avoids making judgments or giving easy answers about the circumstances that led to Siddharth being sent off to work.
Though at times "Siddharth" can resemble a well-photographed report on India's social and economic ills, Mehta subtly employs different styles to sustain the poetry, poignancy, and drama.
"Siddharth" provides something more valuable than a tidy resolution: a glimpse of the complicated nature of life a world away.
Like Vittorio De Sica's "The Bicycle Thief," the film uses downbeat themes to make a point about this particular society and life in general.
