    An indie film shot in 25 different countries, 5 different continents by 25 different directors! I had the fortune to be at the Delhi premiere of the movie. A movie which has already made it to the Guinness book for the maximum number of directors takes you to a distinguished world tour with a backpack as the main protagonist! The plot is captivating but quite ordinary though. The editing, music and video clips have been handled so well that we'd think the movie has been directed by a single director. Very good collaborative efforts in terms of showcasing the variety in languages, cultures and film-making styles. In the end, the backpack comes to a full circle. The end did disappoint me; a lot better could've been done with the plot. The movie does not let you even blink till more than an hour, till it arrives to France & Germany. The parts in India, Dubai, Lebanon, US etc. are interesting too. But post that it becomes very slow and repetitive, specially in Ireland, England, South Africa and so on till it ends. A good movie to watch especially for the innovation in film-making. Recommended for the collaborative style and the efforts of a lot of independent directors.
