The Darjeeling Limited

Watched this on DVD after having heard some good things about it. It is a tale of 3 brother going on a journey across northern and eastern India to meet their mother and also discover themselves a well as their bonding for each other. This movie has released in 2007.

The movie stars Owen Wilson, Adrian Brody and Jason Schwartman as the 3 Whitman brothers. They haven't spoken to each other in a year and each is at at crossroad of relationships in life. They now set off on a train journey to restart things. Directed by Wes Anderson, the movie is a typical depiction of India with the usual landscapes, temples, people etc. Overall the movie is slow, staid and passe.

The tale just does not hold you or allow you be in the place of the brothers emotionally. There is a thread of underlying humor which one may enjoy, if one hadn't been introduced many times to the person in a strange place story before. The actors put in as good performance as the script allows. The movie although disappointing could be watched on a slow Sunday afternoon.

Is it worth watching ? Maybe.
