A Simple Movie with so many messages
15 June 2014 | by vipinkathuria21See all my reviews

This is a movie that one should definitely watch. Everyone of us try to be simple and nice to the people. However as we interact with people, we start making comparison and living in perception. Most of the time we hurt ourselves only by doing this. The movie revolves around this perception and how one believe leads to another. The script and story are simple and close to reality. A Very Good Movie with many messages.
