A movie you should never miss
19 July 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It is one of the BEST movies Bollywood has delivered in years. The story is excellent. After being abandoned for eight years in boarding school, Rohan returns to the small industrial town of Jamshedpur and finds himself closeted with an authoritarian father and a younger half brother who he didn't even know existed. Forced to work in his father's steel factory and study engineering against his wishes, he strives to forge his own life.His only oasis is his uncle, who supports him to pursue his dream of being a writer.

Debutant director Vikramaditya Motwane starts with a bang.Ronit Roy is fantastic. His acting as a tough father really makes the heart bit slow. Young Aayan Boradia is at his best. Ram Kapoor and Rajat Barmecha are equally good. Music is also good and it is a pity that this movie is not promoted well. It has covered all the issues related to teenagers and above all it touches the heart of the youth. Sometime you will feel that your life is mingling with the life of Rohan.And when the movie ends, it leaves an impact for long time.

If you have not seen this, certainly you are missing an exceptional movie
