Fantastic audience reviews from Tokyo Film Festival!

Such heartwarming messages from audiences in Tokyo!


…loved the film…shows how life is ephemeral…found similarity with the countryside of Japan…evoked nostalgia and emotions that cannot be described…


…wish I could give it 200 million score points…so many finer details…a cat walking in the back of mourners’ gathering or the Omni rattling in the midst of a serious conversation. The performances of each actors in the finale inheritance scene are fantastic... it's one of the best films!


…actors are very nice and especially I like the Marathi songs, melodies and lyrics that the ‘Kaka’ was singing in the car. It made me nostalgic even though I can’t understand Marathi…


…The movie gave me both laughter and tears…a delectable drama for all ages…

…the story of a family in which the personal secrets surface triggered by the death of the eldest brother…reveals the weaknesses of human beings which make them interesting to watch…

… It is the exact opposite to the old fashioned Indian entertainment…but still fun…People and families are not perfect in reality and are full of flaws…A good film with a great pace. The song lyrics are poetic too.


…I thought it was just a comedy by trailer, but it has so many storylines and family dramas…the inheritance problem discussed is the same in Japan too…enjoyed watching the film!!

...fine work...film shone...relevant to Japanese culture... ...movie was amazing...loved screenplay, scenery, acting, direction and super proud... ...enjoyed journey with ashes...tempo is great... ....The quarrels, secrets, punch lines in the film look like they can be from a French film... ....the quote from Tolstoy’s ‘Anna Karenina’ which appears at the beginning is justified throughout the film... ...fun to watch...laughed a lot...realised that Marathi films are quite profound...


...this is my first Marathi film, now I want to see more of them! ...the lush landscape was beautiful, the actors are amazing and I wanted to see more...


… The problems of the Karkhanis family are universal…some scenes made me emotional, others made me laugh and the message stayed with me. The Anna Karenina quote in the beginning is fully realised in the film…


…A lovely film that asks what the true value of a happy family is…


…scenery and Indian customs shown in the film are quite interesting.


....a work that includes several themes...am glad that the women are shown in progressive light...


….If you think it is just a journey with laughter and tears of a close knit family, you are wrong. It is also a story of the crumbling private lives and deepening cracks within the family…it makes the trip surprisingly bittersweet.
