The eternal tramp combined with an unwanted kid of the street & makes the audience laugh & cry too. Chaplin’s blend of laughter & pathos changed the notion of what a screen comedy should be. If I am not mistaking than its one of the 1st full length feature film of Charlie Chaplin as an actor- director- producer. The movie is just less than an hour in time duration but impact is beyond time. Movie has certain memorable scenes include a lesson in table manners, fight with kid bully & his hulk looking elder brother, the angelic dream sequence in the climax. Truly Chaplin earns its wings. The movie is one of the personal favorites of actors like Kamal Hasan & Rahul Bose.
A picture with a smile- and perhaps a tear.
One of the rare classic of Chaplin.
Must watch for all Chaplin lovers.
