Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Brilliant. Sub titles a bit of a nuisance simply because they don't stay on the screen long enough. Worth mentioning that to the audience before the film starts.

On the basis that 68 of the 70 audience voted it Excellent, has to get top score. Total delight in every way - and for it to be based on a true story, all the more incredible. Perfect casting. Hardly a dry eye in the house. Fabulous.

Wonderful film, more so because it was a true story. Indian scenes fascinating and the little boy was brilliant - as was Dev Patel.
