It may seem like an ad of the event BUT its NOT
watched HIT THE ROAD: India ...never heard of it UNTIL one day I got a message from Mr. Gor asking me(I mean me!) if I'd like do a review of his film..& as a self proclaimed "movie critic" I accepted the offer gladly
SO we have two North Americans(just regular tourist) in an auto rickshaw/tuk-tuk & a distance of 2000 km to be covered in 12 days in a country like India, where its monsoon time(you have the plot) & they have all the odds(you can bear an auto ride & its sound for 50-60 km BUT not for the 2000 km & this crap is not even designed for it)....Film's cinematography is visually stunning at times..screenplay kinda becomes repetitive(BUT given the plot its a fine job)..with some of the coolest background scores/tracks..AND it shows you the plight, struggle, flickering attitude(see it changing with the time), & of course the "adventure" of these guys as they bears the traffic, potholes, heavy rain, in a bunk ride of India (& this considered as one of the top-10 adventures!)
NOW its a travel documentary about a particular adventure/event that take place in India(makers have mentioned it..so if you expect any other thing, its your fault) & it shows the humane nature of a one particular team(the only cast)during that event n their hazards during the trip...its good that movie stay focused on the topic(it claims) till the end..(its not "perfect" tho)
Given the genre n chosen subject this film is nice & WORTH A WATCH....For someone who is planning to have this "adventure"
...its a _MUST WATCH_
