The story, set in 1971 at the time of the war between India and Pakistan, is based on the novel of the same name by Rohinton Mistry, an Indian now living in Toronto. "Such a Long Journey" takes place mostly in and around a large apartment complex, its courtyard and the street, which the municipal authorities want to widen so that even more choking diesel fumes can cloud the air. We meet the hero, Gustad (Roshan Seth), in the process of defending the old concrete wall that protects his courtyard from the street, and later he strikes a bargain with an itinerant artist (Ranjit Chowdhry), who covers the wall with paintings from every conceivable religious tradition, with the thought that all of the groups represented will join in defending the wall.
Circa 1971, Gustad Noble lives in a one bedroom hall rented apartment in Byculla, Bombay. He travels to work everyday by Central Railway to Victoria Terminus and walks to Flora Fountain to ... . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

As far B-movies go this should be highly praised because it puzzles me why people compare productions like this to hollywood mega-blockbusters with tons of money. For the small budget Vikingdom created a real B-movie gem/miracale here.Its pure fun, the production design sometimes is fantastic (i could hardly believe my eyes when i read this was a Malasyan movie and not an european production), it has a lot of variety either in locations and action scenes and above all its very enjoyable to watch. Two hours go by in a second so its hard for me to understand why such low rating in reviews. Does nobody likes B movies anymore ? Its all about how to compare independent cinema with hollywood blockbusters now ?!...People complain a lot about the CGI effects because we clearly see they are digital matte paintings...what ?... Do you mean in the hollywood blockbusters we dont notice those same effects all over ? I think Vikingdom did a good job with the Cgi and the movie feels a lot like "Vidoq" a french digital production some years ago similar in graphic style.Excelent fantasy atmosphere, feels very epic in some moments despite the low budget and to me its the Lord of the Rings of B-movies. If you love independent low budget movies and like fantasy, you should definetely check this one out. I had more fun watching Vikingdom than watching the latest Hobbit movies put togheter. Because i wasnt expecting at all to see such commitment to create an epic format out of such lack of money. Its like Vikingdom refuses to be the low budget it is and always strides to be the best it can be with the few resources it had available. And for that it should be praised. Pure FUN with a great sense of epic adventure.B-movie fans, ignore the bad hype and see it for yourselves without prejudice.I already bought my 3d blu-ray because i had to put this in my b-movie collection as i really find it one of the very best out there.As far as b-movies go i think this movie is one of the best in recent years. Its not perfect, it has a lot of cheesy moments but that is what makes up a good low budget production and this one is excelent in my opinion.I hope they do a sequel.

Story begin in WW2 where Hannibals parents gets killed and even his sister in a not pleasant way. So when he gets older he revenge his family... Much Violence as usual and overall a nice flick.
