Samaira Movie Review : Good story marred by poor execution
The story is genuinely interesting and one that explores the various sides of pre and post adoption life for the adopted child. With that, the director has also brought in the causes behind people leaving their kids at orphanages. However, this has led to too many things being crammed into a limited time of 1 hr and 55 mins and it takes away from the crux of Samaira’s journey. While having a genuine story is important, it’s not enough. Weaving it into a seamless, technically-sound film is equally important, something that Samaira fails at. Essentially, the films ends up being a passionate attempt, but an amateur one nonetheless.
Ketaki puts her heart into the performance and Ankur is decent too. But, Samaira doesn’t quite hit the mark as a complete experience.
