"Sneak-Peek into the lives and culture of North-East India"
The movie is about the lives of north-east Indians who reside in Delhi. The story talks about the challenges they face while not being considered one while being part of
the same country. Amidst all this, 2 best friends (Upasna/Chenbi) plan to have a marriage ceremony for their 3rd friend Zorem and plan to cook an authentic Nagaland dish Axone (ax-smell, one-strong) pronounced as 'Akhuni'
In terms of acting, Sayani is first rate and with her accent, not even for once make us feel she isn't from the North-east (she actually isnt); where-as Lin Laishram as Chanbi too stands out with her role.
A few dialogues do stand out too where the Hindi saying 'ulta chor kotval ko daate' is brought to life.
Even though the movie has its heart in the right place, it fails to strike the right chords.
The bits and pieces of stories and connections dont align to make it a delactable feast.
In terms of acting, Vinay and Dolly both fail to add any charm to the mix.
Streaming Platform: Netflix
Overall, the content is just about good enough to give you a peek into the lives and culture of North-east india but sadly it does not out-do itself.
