Director Shyamaprasad`s Arike (`So Close`) is one such film. The director has moulded a story as per his own convenience in a way that he wanted to, without caring about anyone else. Not the viewers and even more curiously, not even the actors.
The problem is that either you can relate to the film, feel that bliss of romance and the pain of separation. Or else, you may end up cringing in the seats without enjoying the proceedings much and feeling completely out of sync.
But then, the film has its nice moments as well and makes some bold statements in between. Unlike the usual tradition, the women in the film are not entirely flawless and mere pawns at the hands of the hero.
