List of Road to Sangam Reviews

Ratings:3/5 Reviewer:Nikhat Kazmi Site:TimesOfIndia

The film has done its round at the festival circuit and has garnered appreciable applause. It isn’t hard to see why. Because, Road to Sangam is a sensitive plea for secularism and liberalism, even as it shuns the shrill cry of the fundamentalists in any and every religion. More importantly, it articulates the moderate Muslim voice which needs to be heard loud and clear in this cauldron of increasingly hysterical extremist rhetoric. Paresh Rawal’s Hashmatullah isn’t just a modest car mechanic. He’s a walking, talking Preamble of India, upholding the essential values of a sovereign, democratic, secular nation.

One look at the promos of ROAD TO SANGAM and you realize that this isn’t one of those films you watch every week. ROAD TO SANGAM, in fact, pricks your conscience and mirrors a reality. A simple, thought-provoking story, ROAD TO SANGAM has some brilliant moments and also some sequences that you carry home. But what could’ve been told in a concise format seems stretched after a point. Also, besides moving at a snail’s pace, there’s also sermonising at times, which wasn’t really required. On the whole, ROAD TO SANGAM is mainly for connoisseurs of cinema and also for the festival circuit.

Fiction with a tadka of reality. The concept is brilliant. The mixing of the two is smart. Imagine someone concocting a story around an urn containing the ashes of Bapu and drumming up a delectable recipe for peace. There’s also mention of Jinnah and his hand in the partition. Food for thought. Sixty-three years later, the hate war still wages. In the beginning, ROAD TO SANGAM, is a little bumpy, but though the journey is a little long, it enlightens before you reach the end. It leaves you asking many questions. I strongly recommend, that the young and old should venture on this ROAD TO SANGAM. It’s a journey worth exploring.

Amit Rai’s Road to Sangam is yet another addition to the marquee that talks about the age-old bitterness etched in the hearts of several Hindus and Muslims during the 1947 partition.First timer Amit Rai does an admirable job in making a thought provoking film that drones the message of equality and humanity without getting clichéd.The story is gripping but the pace is extremely slow giving the film the feel of a docu-feature, which somehow evaporates the tremendous impact it made at the interval.It’s a journey worth exploring.

This is a small tender idea, executed with a certain amount of élan and loads and loads of heart. Writer-director Amit Rai’s debut film is a Gandhian parable done up in shades that are at once, pristine pastel noble gentle warm tender and funny.Lay down the guns and swords of the unnecessarily Veer generation. Look at the wounded world through the eyes of a man who feels Mahatma Gandhi’s last remains in a urn are more crucial than being rigidly loyal to your own cause and religion. There’s a lesson to be learnt from this film.Luckily we aren’t required to dig too deep into the narrative to procure the message.Gentle and heart-warming Road To Sangam is that rare passionate paean to patriotism that doesn’t resort to flag-waving even once.
