This is a film about four friends in Dharamsala, the exile seat of Tibetans, their dreams and aspirations. Nyima, the lead character of the film is a die hard fan of the Hollywood icon, Richard Gere and wanted to follow his footsteps to do something meaningful for his country, Tibet. The film can be classified under romantic comedy – where two of the friends ultimately falling in love with the same lady and the story unfold. Suitable doses of Exile politics and the Buddhism philosophy of life adds new layer to the film. The film broke the myth that Tibetans cannot be good actors when it comes to celluloid. It will be remembered for its sheer entertainment value, good direction, excellent performances and nice camera work.
