A fascinating look at the disparity between the haves and have-nots in India, the film gives a unique and fascinating take on a part of the world that Westerners don’t get to see (and appreciate) all that often. The largely unknown cast (Priyanka Chopra has a small part and is the only recognizable face) does stellar work, but the film is missing that extra little bit of oomph that could have sent it sprinting across the finish line. Worthwhile as a time killer but certainly not appointment viewing.

3/5 stars
