An Awakening

Directed by John Seddon, Vaibhav Kaul  |  Review by Ananya Jana

John is a young British cinematographer and film director specializing in documentaries. Vaibhav is a young, emotionally driven mountain geographer, visual artist, singer, and poet from India. His academic interests range from glacial geomorphology to ethnomusicology.

The cast is anchored by the wonderful actor whose talents are squandered on this postmodern Film. It is full of suspense and it is delightful how the story slowly unfolds itself and completely taking a U-turn. The suspense begins―both on the mountain and beyond the world―as the artist give everything to work, fall in love with his passion, and struggle to expose the truth, until he comes face to face with the ultimate Love and Truth.

Far away from home and heritage, a young physically disabled and desolated Himalayan scholar is found barely alive. In many ways, the story unfolds the New phase that how the people fulfill their wish and follow their passion even in their toughest moments. It’s the courage of the heart which makes the person alive and they believe that he will achieve his goal.

From the very beginning, we find the young man as a customary person who ordinarily spends his life. From the general eye, it’s a little bit uneasy to understand his love and passion for mountains. Finally, he found the thirst of wonder and his soul free within the mountains. The purity of the hill can save his soul, physical disability can’t make his path block because the inner voice always wants to fly high.
The movie was shot in northern England and the scenario and the audio both create a natural atmosphere which makes it easy for the audience to immerse. The movie is so well made and engaging that such distinctions will make little difference to the viewer.

I believe a diverse audience can enjoy the movie. There are no big actions scenes and all of the hopes and passion the director creates is exactly what we can expect from a film like this. This is a sweet movie and a good, simple premise. The story unfolds slowly, which seems to extenuate the loneliness of the character. The young boy was terrific, and he plays his role very pleasantly. It was great to see when he got his soul free.

Both directors are smartly portraying the whole scene in a short period and at the same time; they portray the character of the artist in a very dynamic way. At the beginning of the movie really it didn’t look so attractive, and during it there were a lot of ups and downs, some were boring and make no sense, and other was a nice confusing tension, but in the last sections of the movie figured all the things out, really it was an amazing end. An end worth waiting for.
