Road, Movie: This trip is boring


Road, MovieA road trip epitomises my idea of a good time and so does watching a great film. A combination of the two on celluloid is an exciting proposition.

Add to the fact that you have two young, promising actors — Abhay Deol and Tannishtha Chatterjee — and “Road, Movie” ┬áhad a lot going for it.

An hour-and-a-half later, I walked out of the theatre disappointed with the film. A lot of people would call “Road, Movie” a “festival film” but I dispute that point because I have seen a lot of good films at festivals.

This one was shot beautifully and had some good dialogues, but on the whole I was bored out of my mind.
