Ferrari Ki Sawaari revolves around a child, a father, a grandfather and their inimitable stories. It speaks of a childs dreams and a fathers love tales that everyone can relate to and somewhere in this everyday plot enters the twisted tale of a Ferrari. The film has Sharman and Boman playing the lead parts, and is touted to be a slice of life film about a middle class family.

After getting addicted to Indian movies with Rowdy Rathore's film, Ferrari Ki Sawaari is no less addictive. Of course, there is no shortage of talented Indian actors who could best represent their culture, but the decision of the moviemaker to address delicate Indian traditions was essential in understanding the mindset of the characters.

A socially naive father struggles with raising his own son to the best that society could produce, morally and intellectually. With meager income, such ambition to reach his son's dreams, the father's naivety got him into unintended troubles stemming from his concrete perception of social contracts.

The first trouble started by the father's inability to realize that the Criccet sport was not the only channel where his son could reach his dreams. As soon as the son was chosen to represent India at the age of 12, the father attempted to get the 150,000 rubies by all available legal means. Then a sarcastic joke from his father was perceived as true, that got his to be entangled in unintended theft of an expensive Ferrari form his father's old enemy.

One of the most influential and soothing characters in the movie was the woman mediator who got the father to retrieve the Ferarri from its owner. A true and serious social character who walked in men's restroom to strike a deal with no sensitivity to men doing their stuff, energies most diplomatic negotiation in the conflicts with astonishing results, and added great depth to the cultural weight of the movie.

A unique and odd situation of a spoiled son taking advantage of his father's political status was also played with the norms of the Indian tradition.

'Ferrari Ki Sawaari' - although a Hindi film, has the feel of a slo-mo Arthouse film. It is a very weak film indeed.

I say that in spite of a very decent performance by Sharman Joshi as the ever-sincere doting single father, and Boman Irani as the grumpy, TV-glued grandpa, complete with white beard and glasses!

Actually, I have never seen a story where every bit of emotion is so forced and magnified you actually don't feel anything but annoyed. Giant close ups of events that are meant to make you feel moved, such as the boy falling over during a game of cricket, in seemingly very slow speed camera, cued with sad piano. This sort of thing happens again and again and again during the film until you feel like smashing a piano to bits with a cricket bat.

Every bit of humour is forced and feels so cued that you don't feel like laughing. Most Hindi movies are invigorating, but this one is so bland. Hard to rate it very highly.

There are some good scenes with bit-part actors such as the bumbling car attendants and the scoundrel who is a Politicians son, but the overbearing emotional magnification weighs the whole thing down.

The father and grandfather keep talking about going to London with a big tear gently squeezing out the corner of their eye that the viewer ends up hoping he doesn't go, only to see the film's ending, an oh so slow-speed shot of thousands of people cheering the boy as he walks onto the cricket pitch, trying desperately to drum up the emotion, but failing. I don't think it could even rate two stars.
