If you always gear up to chase the hidden adventures, here’s your tour guide: Revolving around the nation – Blue Sky, Green Sea, Red Earth by Sameer Thahir has to be in yours goodie Bag of movies.
The nation is under shackles of numerous separatist ideologies and is seeing mass disturbance through its borders. So from the dalit student suicide to a girl from Nagaland being called “nepali and chinki” – This multi-lingual movie depicts the protest all over the nation. Furthermore: there are instances of naxal movements and the northeast turmoil even honour killings.
Covering Kerala to Nagaland via Kolkata and Assam to soothe his unruffled nerves, Kasim aka Kasi is all gloved. With him is the man of few words: Suni. Reaching villages where destitute is smiling, some pining for their unrequited love: Kasi and Suni realize that life has much more in its store.
Grooving water bike rides from Puri to meeting his ladylove Assi in Nagaland: this movie will blow your mind with the beautiful cinematography by Gireesh Gangadharan but there are some misfits too. The scenes are not in sync with the background score and are paces behind. At times it is so similar to “the motorcycle diaries” that you gush with surprise.
But yes, if you wish to hit the road ever, unpack your travel thoughts before you with – Blue Sky, Green Sea, Red Earth.
