MORE AWESOME REVIEWS FROM TOKYO!! YAY!!!

…loved the film…shows how life is ephemeral…found similarity with the countryside of Japan…evoked nostalgia and emotions that cannot be described…

…wish I could give it 200 million score points…so many finer details…a cat walking in the back of mourners’ gathering or the Omni rattling in the midst of a serious conversation. The performances of each actors in the finale inheritance scene are fantastic… it’s one of the best films!

… it was really interesting! An Indian road movie that you don’t usually see.

…One of the brothers looks like my uncle, so I felt like I was traveling in India in an uncle’s car…enjoyed it…so much laughter and sadness but then felt comfort in it too.

…loved the parallel track of the two mothers…each fighting for their own family…

…actors are very nice and especially I like the Marathi songs, melodies and lyrics that the ‘Kaka’ was singing in the car. It made me nostalgic even though I can’t understand Marathi…

…The movie gave me both laughter and tears…a delectable drama for all ages…

…one after another unexpected facts are revealed before the family reaches its destination. Enjoyed the film…A family comedy packed with the misfortunes of life!

…the story of a family in which the personal secrets surface triggered by the death of the eldest brother…reveals the weaknesses of human beings which make them interesting to watch…

…A lovely film that asks what the true value of a happy family is…

… It is the exact opposite to the old fashioned Indian entertainment…but still fun…People and families are not perfect in reality and are full of flaws…A good film with a great pace. The song lyrics are poetic too.

…I thought it was just a comedy by trailer, but it has so many storylines and family dramas…the inheritance problem discussed is the same in Japan too…enjoyed watching the film!!

… The problems of the Karkhanis family are universal…some scenes made me emotional, others made me laugh and the message stayed with me. The Anna Karenina quote in the beginning is fully realized in the film…

…scenery and Indian customs shown in the film are quite interesting.

….If you think it is just a journey with laughter and tears of a close knit family, you are wrong. It is also a story of the crumbling private lives and deepening cracks within the family…it makes the trip surprisingly bittersweet.
