A message movie, with mixed results .... mainly for niggling details, like an English girl who promptly learns flawless Hindi?? Really? And ups herself to India to make a film, and funding is no problem? While I can guess she was just lucky to experience absolutely no difficulty along the lines of racism, anti-imperialism, or sexism, can you believe that a fair-haired girl can go bare-shouldered all day long and not get a sunburn?

OK, OK, forget all that: there are plenty of agreeably good scenes, if you can accept that 40-year-old Aamir Khan is a college student. The message is good, the film is entertaining. These departures from reality dilute the power for me, but maybe not for you.

Great film about two groups of very different people, almost a century apart, who try to make their country a better place. The film felt particularly relevant these days with the recent massive protests against corruption all over India.
