First things first, this movie is a must watch and it should be done at the earliest, for two reasons
- The movie is a brilliant piece of work.
- It runs only a few shows in Satyam Cinemas, in the whole of Chennai.
Now coming to the other details, its better for the 'mass crowd' to know what this movie is all about.
- This movie has no popular or even known names in its crew except for a dash of Kiran Rao reference.
- There are no cinematic fights.
- There are no songs.
- Most of the time there is no background score.
- This is not a cinematographic visual treat.
- The languages spoken by characters include Arabic, Sanskrit & Swedish and of course Hindi & mostly English.
- There are sub titles in English.
- There are no duets or dream sequences.
- There are no flashbacks too.
Also there are certain other things which might interest a few or maybe add on to the previous list for some others.
- The movie is so real that one can venture out to find scores of such people | stories in real world.
- One will realize that vision does not necessarily have to result in glee for the blind.
- One waging a war against cruelty cannot survive to win the war without endorsing it some point if their life is at stake.
- Life's fulfillment is just not about money or one's own self but something subtler and yet larger than life.
- The ones between Aliya Kamal & Vinay has a lot of subtle and yet valuable relationship related takeaways.
- All of those conversations between Maitreya & Charvaka are absolute delight to listen to with each of it touching the highs of logic to philosophy and even spirituality.
- Lastly the single conversation between Navin Parnami and his grandma is soul stirring that changes purpose of the character of Navin altogether thereafter.
I would like to quote Anand Gandhi on this - "The three short stories evolved to fill in the three corners of the classical Indian trinity of Satyam-Shivam-Sunderam (The pursuit of truth, the pursuit of righteousness and the pursuit of beauty)" and the movie indeed serves an answer to the famous paradox.
