Hope And A Little Sugar Hindi Cinema Review

The director has come up with a rather emotional subject and has presented it very well with the apt narration and the required maturity. The script was racy and the screenplay was good and the music department has supported the frontal end very strongly. Camera department did a good job in capturing the intense emotional scenes and unlike the regular Indo-American films, this one has come up with a different treat. Mahima looked very graceful in her role and gave it the correct touch while debutante Amit showed good balance in his emotions and expressions. Vikram Chatwal did not have much to offer since his role was limited but the real show stealer was Anupam Kher who has given a stalwart performance as the anguished father and a fiery colonel. His outburst on screen was truly hair rising, another powerful performance came from Suhasini Mulay who played the mother and she is the perfect choice for the role. The rest came up with good performances and did justice to their characters in the film.

Hope And A Little Sugar Filem Review
The film maker has come up with a very mature outlook and has showcased the trauma of a family post the terror attacks in a gripping manner. Though the movie is set on a completely foreign backdrop it portrayed that feelings are same wherever they are and the religious barriers that get created due to a mindless attack by a small pocket creates a wholesome impact. The movie may not appeal to the fun loving and masala seeking audience but the multiplex folk can relate to it easily and few scenes really awaken the viewer to a greater cause. This is another marvel which has already been sent to the film festival and can be considered a critics choice for a good flick.

Bharatstudent verdict: Strongly recommended, worth watching!!!
