beautiful film. it takes you to a truly foreign place and introduces you to characters (genuine people who take pleasure from the simplest things in life) you don't meet anymore in the streets of london, new york, istanbul, etc. Dasgupta is a true auteur (as well as an econ prof! imagine that..), and this little film will stay with me for a long time..
A bit of young romance, a bit of schoolboy nostalgia, a bit of larcenous comedy, and it evolves into a road movie. Despite some amateurish performances and a plot driven by dumb decisions, not entirely a waste of time.
