Storyline

The movie chronicles the arrival of a (Hindu) student to a strict all-boys Christian boarding school in India and his assimilation into the school. The change is quite dramatic to the protagonist and there are a lot of events that would look extremely abusive to the viewer. Written by Neel V Kumar <neelvk@terway.com>

Indian Boarding School Realism!
31 May 2008 | by cool-bhargavaSee all my reviews

I decided to watch this film for two basic reasons;1)Nagesh Kukunoor & 2)because I too study in a boarding school of India. This film shows the reality of a boarding life which has never ever been shown on- screen. This is precisely what happens in an Indian Boarding school, obviously somethings may vary but this is more or less precise.And if you too happen to study in one, this film will revive all the old memories, incidences, stupidness,silliness, failures and successes. Though it does not touch each and every aspect of a boarding life but still it's a must see.

My personal favorite parts are what the lead experiences in the starting of his life there, because that what happens to most of the students.
