It is your story. No! Its 'our' story! It is Touching, It is heart breaking and if it drives you down the memory lane - that is 'Good Night | Good Morning'

Its a surprise package. Its a Lovely and a Lively conversation film. Its got Terrific writing, credits to Sudhish Kamath and Shilpa Rathnam and a Amazing Screenplay with Perfect Casting. I can easily say this is the 'Most Daring movie ever made'! Its a 'Must Watch'.

I am going with 4/5!

Here is the Synopsis of the film -

'Good Night Good Morning is a black and white, split-screen, conversation film about two strangers sharing an all-night phone call on New Year's night.

Driving from New York to Philadelphia with buddies, calls the enigmatic girl staying alone in her hotel room, after a brief encounter at the bar earlier in the night.

The boy has his baggage of an eight-year-old failed relationship and the girl has her own demons to fight. Scarred by unpleasant memories, she prefers to travel on New Year's Eve.

An all-night phone call becomes a surreal, dream-like experience. Especially when the limited validity of the adventure gives you the freedom to be who you want to be.

Anonymity could be comforting and such a situation could lead to an almost romance. Or something like it.'

Manu Narayan (as Turiya Omprakash) and Seema Rahmani (as Moira) - Top Notch Acting, perfect chemistry between the leads. Oh Wait! What chemistry are you talking about when they dont see each other through out the film? Yes, Even though they dont see each other, there is this Excellent chemistry between them. After watching the movie, you will definitely agree with me.Raja Sen (as JC) was fantastic. Vasanth Santhosham (as Hussein) was good. People involved in Casting - You are one of the reason for Film's Success!

Script is simple and straight and its got to be that way (as said in the film). It is well written. Dialogues are funny, touching, heartbreaking and to top it all, it is very natural and subtle. Screenplay is Brilliant and Well-etched and you become a character in the film. Credits to Writer Shilpa Rathnam and Sudhish Kamath. Direction - You got to congratulate Sudhish Kamath for choosing such a daring theme and Pulling it off in Style! Overall, Fabulous Job.

When was the last time you watched a Black & White movie? Yes, Sudhish Kamath's Good Night | Good Morning is 80% Black and White and Cinematographer Nischalakrishna Vittalanathan's work stands out. Nice Lighting and Perfect Framing. He makes the movie look Rich with the Black & White tone.

Editing by Vijay Venkataramanan, M. Venkatram and Murugesh Thevar works for me! It was Slick and Crisp. He is also another reason for movie's success. Music by Ray Guntrip Feat. Tina May | Manu Narayan & Darunam | Blues Conscience Feat. Sudeep is a Big Plus. Outstanding Background score takes the movie to another level. Costumes by Shilpa Rathnam are ok. Other crew members hard work is evident and they deserve a huge applause.

I also see a lot of Pre-Production has gone into making this film a grand success. Job well done!

Good Night | Good Morning is way(^as many) better than many mainstream Indian films! It is a Writing Masterpiece. Exceptional Writing. It is a Great moment for Indian Indie-Filmmaking Fraternity. I was So happy to see everyone glued to their seats for the Q&A. That was the impact the movie had on the New Yorkers!
