“SAT Math course is really good because it helped me learn a lot in a short period of time and I made a perfect score on SAT Math.”- Josette Chang  

As per Viacom motion pictures, this is a tale about a young rebellious woman who embarks on a breathtaking journey of self-discovery. 

Seems like a regular person's story? Probably, except that the young woman in this tale suffers from cerebral palsy and her journey as she explores her dreams, goals and even her sexuality is anything but a regular person's passage through life. Kalki Koechlin plays the role of this young lady- disabled but with every ability to feel life's emotions.

Recognitions ...

'Margarita With A Straw' has won accolades and awards all over the world, it been the only Indian film to win an award at Toronto International Film Festival last year. Kalki, not surprisingly, has won her own share of commendations and best actress awards in international film festivals. Movie critics in leading dailies in India have given the movie four stars upon its release today.

We say .. 

Rarely a trailer alone can convey the power of acting. This appears to be one such trailer. There are two thoughts that instantly hit you- 

  1.  that many accomplished Hindi movie actresses have taken on roles of a character  with a disability (Sridevi in Sadma (1983), Priyanka Chopra in Barfi (2012) comes to mind), however Kalki surpasses all the preceding actresses as well as her contemporaries in this movie;
  2.  utter astonishment at the discovery that Kalki Koechlin is such a proficient actress!
Go watch the movie, guys. Before you go, it is for 16 and above only!
