Somewhat disjointed but lots of fun
on August 29, 2016
This tongue-in-cheek comedy was a delight to watch, mainly because of its series of peculiar unfolding events that befall three estranged brothers making their way through India by train and taxi to seek their recluse mother, an improbable situation at best. "It's all about the journey", as other reviewers have noted, although one could glimpse a deeper meaning to the odyssey if it weren't quite so silly. Alternatively, one might imagine following long-ago tracks of the Beatles, who did stints in India to help make sense of all the money they were making. Anyway, three rousing cheers for director Wes Anderson and the same for colorful India itself.
