Speed-breaker for fast running life
1 August 2010 | by bprasannakumarSee all my reviews

It took me 4 years, to get a chance to watch this film. I read about about this film in a weekly magazine. Since that time I was looking for this film in stores. But I was unlucky. Now luckily I had a chance to see this film. This film portrays the simple life lead by a grand-mother in a village. The grandson, who was suddenly left to grow with his grandmother, gets a chance to see the positive side of life through grandmother's guidance. It makes me feel nostalgic about my days spent with my grandmother. All the characters have acted very well. Every character touches our heart by its unique humane deeds. Its a must watch film for those who wants to have a speed breaker for their fast running life and look back at those who have taken care of them or who are in need of them.
