The lucky One's
17 June 2013 | by aguha-715-523112See all my reviews

The presentation of the movie is very smart.There are many dimensions to the subject and presented in a very simple and sensitive manner. There is also a strong sociological message emitted from the subject. The music is very nice and very much with the mood of the plot. The clarity of thought and subject is clearly visible in each frame.

The contrast in the subject is presented so smartly that one need to be very acute observant to be able to distinguish the light and shade but there is one indeed.

Congratulations to Bala and the whole crew for doing such a good job and looking forward to the next master piece from you guys. All the best.
