Idea was great, but the script!
The protagonist of the film Dr.Amit (doppleganger of Amit Shah :)) is suffering from Dimentia in some last years of his life. Being a loner, he misses his childhood home and friend, is haunted by the childhood memories and then one fine day he befriends an autowala in his city and breaks free on a journey visiting certain places cherishing his old memories. The route of the journey is in reverse to his memories, i.e. he first visits place where his son was born, then the temple where he got married, the college where he studied and got his degree, the orphanage where he grew up and finally the village where he was born and brought up as a child. He used to relive those old moments linked to that particular place. Also throughout the journey the bond between the auto driver and the doctor is developed which is much more than between the doctor and his son.
Story was nice, but the fault that I found was in dilogue delivery. The dialogues were entirely in english, had they been in hindi the audience could have connected themselves more interestingly. Although in english they were poorly wtitten and delivered. And by the end of the film you will feel bored, reason being the monotonous dialogues. I think the intensity and the feel of the script was lost because of improper expression of words.
Mango Dreams is a light and slow movie which actually depicts no matter how old you grow or how much you have earned, when you reach those last days of your life you will always wish to travel back to your childhood days. Especially when you are parted from your home town.
So friends, you can watch it once and there is also a nice surprise waiting for you at the end of the movie to make you delighted.
