Rohan Singh: Tiny little memories are laid all over the lawn of innumerable moments. Barefoot, I have walked on it for so long that I have forgotten where I had removed my shoes. Soles were soft at the beginning and they are tender still. Indeed, they are bound to remain that way as long as the mischievous antics of the bitter-sweet memories keep tingling them. It is true that I do not remember where I had taken off the shoes, but coming to think of it, I do not need them anymore.

Universally Sad...
7 November 2020 | by XstalSee all my reviews

Quite often the cinema of India is unique to its cultures. On this occasion however, we're presented with a universal story. A taut relationship, often violent, aggressive and abusive between a father and his son, with two amazing performances taking centre stage. A picture, a perspective, a tale that will sadden and upset but reflective of so many who have, and continue to find themselves in similar positions within any number of countries and cultures the world over.
