| Awesome movie!
I was pleasantly surprised to see that such simple movies are still made. I was surprised that Ganesh Acharya, a choreographer actually directed this movie. Excellent acting, dialogues, storyline, music and direction. I wish more such movies were made. I'd like to address a couple of points that folks have raised:

1. Why did Radha buy a chair at the cost of her surgery: Well, first this is a love story. I think Radha thought that she would never get a chance to buy a chair again.

Second, in the scene at the doctor's the doctor never mentioned that this could be life threatening and I think it is something very common that if the doctor does not stress on the criticality of an illness, the patient does not take it seriously. So I think this can easily be considered as a non issue.

2. The fact that the promise was an old one and they did not have to go to USA: I think again this was a love story and that is all that Swami wanted to do - realize Radha's dream. Also, Anand categorically refuses his boss and in fact did not even mention it to his dad (Swami finds out as he overhears). It was only when Swami makes him swear on his mom that he stops and continues with the decision.

3. Last, acting of Swami's friends was slightly over the top: I agree here but for such an awesome movie that is a small part that can be overlooked!
