There are some movies which become unwatchable within 15 minutes of start. The reason is the director's attitude " I am making a great film which is going to sweep all awards across film festivals". In the process important elements of a good movie like screenplay,high moments,character chemistry all are thrown out of the window.The most common character of all these "intelligent" movies is a totally absent climax. As a result what you see on the screen where the actors and atmosphere is like of those ultimate classics. The only problem being that the audience cannot see any classic anywhere.

Judi Dench and Ali Fazal ar sincere and good actors unfortunately that alone does not make a good movie.

The plot is about how two humans from very distinct background are thrown together and they develop a unique friendship.The plot however does not display any conviction of how this relationship develops. The two actors try hard in the absence of a story and a director.

Therefore even a short running time of 152 minutes become a pan to sit through.You want to see how humans from different pasts become great friends try Driving Miss Daisy or the Indian Do Ankhein Barah Haath.

Stay away from this sham of intellect.

Half star that too is for the two actors effort.
