This film offers an inside look at children growing up during a violent period in Assam and shows how they are affected. They create a realistic story as a play. The film explores the difference between what is real in a play compared to real life. The film flows very well. It explores the friendship between Pulak and Niyori. We see the protagonist, Niyori, with his family as a adult. When he learns of the death of his childhood friend Pulak, we learn about their childhood adventures. The flashbacks of Pulak and Niyori's childhood are very charming and we can feel and experience how remarkable it was. In one scene, Kuwoli, the younger sister of Niyori sees a group setting fire to a village while on her way to school. It traumatizes her and she refuses to speak. At their wits' end, her parents call her grandfather and he explains to the sisters how film can make something seem real when it is not. He gets Kuwoli to talk again. The scenery of the Indian State of Aasam is stunningly beautiful and calming, especially the scenes of the river bordering the village. This film encourages the idea of keeping promises and dreaming big no matter what happens. I recommend this for ages 12 to 18 and give it 4.5 out of 5 stars. Reviewed by Juanita S., KIDS FIRST!
