Until now, foreign language movies used to be the prime source of ‘inspiration’ for some filmmakers, but this one comes from the small world of entertainment. Television has come a long way, and it is no more limited to atte-sose sagas or the emotionally charged family dramas. Wondering about the ‘small’ connection? Then try taking a selfie with this big picture.

With lifestyle, food and adventure as the base, the movie attempts to make sense of three separate lives which are stuck in their own set of problems in life. Hence, three protagonists coincidentally meet each other in Goa!

 

While one has quit his job to become a director, another one is facing family issues, and the lady comes with pre-marital worries over her individual identity. There is also a motherly act who later cooks up a dish which eventually fixes up the broken lives of all the three.

The adventure takes off with the escapades of newfound friendship in Goa. Owing to cinematic liberty, the three end up stranded on an island. This is where they pour their hearts out which further strengthens the bond between them.

Moving on from the friendly show, it takes a motherly twist and then to some adventure such as paragliding, river rafting and trekking. It even follows up with a cooking competition in the end.

 

At times, it is even slower than a television drama which goes on and on. Not all selfies are picture perfect, and so is the case with this one too.
