Ferrari ki Sawari - External Reviews

wogma rating: Buy the DVD already (?)
quick review:

Ferrari Ki Sawaari is worth a watch in the theaters, just for the love with which it is put together and the warmth with which you come out. Who would have thought we'd be getting a positive lesson in parenting from a Hindi film and that too at the hands of Sharman Joshi and Satyadeep Misra?
