‘The Crow’s Egg’

30-x-40-eng-cSimple, charming, endearing – two young brothers strut the streets of Chennai to earn the money to taste pizza.

Very much in the ilk of the Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire – appealing young cast, catchy soundtrack, succeeding in the face of adversity – the first film of writer/director M Manikandan is a slight film with a lot of heart that touches on numerous global issues.

And as with Danny Boyle’s feature, it’s the kids who carry the day.
