Extremely entertaining from the beginning to the end. Touches on a number of social issues with a sensitive and graceful approach. Excellent actors delivering a well-written script.

Interesting exploration of religion, relationships and ambition presented with a lot of humor and pathos. Wonderfully conceived staging and terrific performances by the two lead men.
