To view this movie you have to willing to be with the characters as they develop, not expect lots of outer action, rather it's the suble working of relationships.

We enjoyed this cozy little relationship movie. It's two main character's seemed heartfelt and full of internal conflict. The unseen but frequently heard character of the woman's auntie left your imagination to fill in her physical details but you definitely felt her presence throughout the film. While it is mostly subtitled in English and mostly spoken in Hindi there are portions in English and it makes it seem like a very real window into life of quite a few in India. They are caught in their roles and families just as much but in a way no different from anywhere else! It open ending leaves you with a positive an hopeful feeling for the two main characters!

Actors were fascinating to watch, and the view into the life of another city, the sights and sounds were so vivid. I almost felt I could taste the food too. Cinematography beautifully done. Story unfolded slowly, compelling despite its analog pace in the world of paper and pen. A different world from mine, yet I took thoughtful encouragement from their own thoughtful confrontations with life. For adults and very mature teens. A gem!

Beautiful--both sad and optimistic

This was an incredible movie. I felt like I knew the characters and understood them personally. The scenes of India also gave such a realistic view of everyday life in Mumbai--fascinating.

This movie was charming, funny, poignant -- delved into themes of loneliness, aging, self awareness, and courage. Loved this movie on so many levels!! Impeccable acting, believable characters, excellent in all respects.
