Ajayan Venugopalan has written a story and screenplay about two Indians who feel lost in their own individual ways in a foreign land. However, he strays so much that the crux of the drama gets scattered.On the whole, Shiv Shastri Balboa has a few good moments but its chances at the box-office are very bleak.

You can do whatever you want, as long as you want it enough. And senior citizens can also have fun. The message is not new. It’s bumper-sticker, yes, but also, quite light and likeable.

There’s no scope for songs in Shiv Shastri Balboa. The makers, wisely, refrain from stuffing the narrative with song and dance sequences. The background score feels too generic,To conclude, this is a sincere effort that can be watched for Anupam Kher and Neena Gupta’s delightful performances.

Shiv Shastri Balboa, a film sprung into the theatres without any pre-release buzz, turns out to be a pleasant surprise.The film often stretches plausibility but retains its gentle humour and a remarkable lack of melodrama.The friendship that develops between between Shastri and Elsa is intimate yet decorous.

The story is a complete family entertainer, though it does suffer from one subplot too many and loses some steam for a while towards the end as a legal battle is introduced. If you are looking for a movie you can enjoy with your family, you must definitely head to the theatres.

Shiv Shastri Balboa is sweet, innocent and an endearing story about love, life and learnings. While the film has its heart at the right place, watch it for some relatable performances from Kher and Gupta that would make you want to rediscover life.
