Krish played by Aamir Bashir and Meera played by Sandhya Mridul are the average Indian couple, who work for multinational organizations, trying to achieve success, at the cost of their private life, and mental peace. After some time they cannot take it any more, and decide to go on a quest: a hunt for the Great Indian Butterfly, an insect that brings happiness to the one that catches it. This amazing, innovative and a great piece of art is directed by Sarthak Dasgupta, produced by Sanjay Gupta and Parth Arora. Whereas it' s written by Sarthak Dasgupta and the music is composed by Shibani Kashyap, Deepak Pandit and Gourov Dasgupta. This movie is a simple tale in the complex miasma of a changing India. The main character in the movie is played by a young Indian couple climbing the ladder of the corporate rat race in a nation hurtling forward at a rate unprecedented in its long history. Confused, lonely and unable to come to terms with the sacrifice required for success, they go in search of a legendary magical insect.
Debutante director Sarthak Dasgupta has done a commendable job where showing the conflict between the couple is concerned. He has also covered a rare emotions and conveyed his point without much confusion. The best parts of the film are the ones where the fights between the couple. It gives a wide picture and an insight of the metro cities staying couples face in reality. However, the left out parts are the never-ending monologues about happiness, butterfly and the symbolic valley that are too stretched. Despite the movie running for a short duration of just over 100 minutes, the plot appears stagnated in the second half. An overdose of songs could also have been avoided. The cinematography by Shanker Raman is very good and one does not understand how a few out of focus shots were not noticed!
Aamir Bashir does a great job but Sandhya Mridul is simply outstanding and her English is not with a fake accent, how an average Mumbai girl would generally speak. Koel Purie in her very small role manages to leave her impression. Barry John playing the narrator of what the Great Indian Butterfly is all about is passable.
If you are looking for totally entertaining movie then this is the movie to watch...!!! So hit the theater as soon as possible..!!
