Gali Guleiyan Review
The movie amassed a lifetime box office total of Rs. 50 crore and won awards at various international film festivals. It was praised as a sympathetically presented drama with some nice twists by the American internet and print publication “The Hollywood Reporter.”
Manoj Bajpayee, a National Award-winning actor who is well-known for his work, referred to the part he played as “my Everest as an actor.” The way the movie depicts disturbing psychological isolation and parent-child distance is what most impresses us about it.
