Now Kantabai, in spite of being old, ailing and lonely, she finds ways to keep herself busy. We see her walk all the way to the office of a typist, who helps her send letters to her son and her grandchildren in Mumbai.
Through one of her her letter, we get to know that she could be suffering from lung cancer and wants her son to come get her as she needs him.
Once the letter reaches Mumbai, her daughter-in-law, does not even bother to open the letter. Kantabai’s son loves her, but is too caught up with his job. Besides, his wife makes it clear that she would not like his mother staying with them.
As the film progresses, Kantabai’s grandchildren, Diya (Saara Nahar) and her elder brother Prakhar (Prakhar Morchhale) stumble upon her unread letters. They read the letters and realise that their grandmother needs to be with them. So they decide to leave for Goa in a train without informing their mother.
From here on both these kids take help from random strangers to reach their destination but then it’s too late.
Barefoot To Goa is a simple story that’s very simply told. However the maker seems confused, whether his film was an emotional drama or a road trip.
The film has nothing new to offer as we have seen this happen in several television series, leave alone in films.
The writing of Barefoot To Goa is very poor and that’s what is really upsetting. The characters are mundane and boring and they follow a typical pattern.
What’s funny is the fact that we get to see random characters appear from nowhere and have no relevance to the storyline.
Praveen Morchchale has co-written as well as directed Barefoot To Goa; guess he knew post his he may not get a change to showcase his talent and that’s the reason he has presented himself in all the possible ways he could.
All in all, Barefoot To Goa, is amateurish, technically very poor and has nothing new to offer.
Best to avoid this one!!
Barefoot To Goa is all about Kantabai (Farrukh Jaffar), who is in her 80's. He is all alone as her son and daughter are busy in their lives. Now Ka...0.5
