Dulquer Salmaan and Irrfan help navigate this amiable road trip movie
A road trip is a useful tool to convey growth, change, catharsis, coming of age, acceptance and resolution. It’s something like this for a trio of disparate individuals brought together by one life-changing event in Akarsh Khurana’s Karwaan. But the diversions along the way need to be meaningful and should add to the growth of the characters. Some of the pit stops in Khurana and Adhir Bhat’s script (based on a story by Bejoy Nambiar) feel gratuitous and the characters never reach out and touch us.
