Sometime spark of chance happening in life ignites the fire and turns the ordinary man into an extraordinary human being. May be a racial discrimination in South Africa was that spark for Gandhi. This film is not a usual gypsy journey or travelogue. What initially seems like an adventure journey for two young Doctors culminates towards a humanitarian exploration for one and transformation for the other. It is this journey which transformed a young doctor who’s pursuing his MD and struggling with frequent asthma attacks into Commander Che Guevara – the influential leader of Cuban revolution.
Written by Che himself, its true story of younger Che and what made him change his course of life.The first half of the film full of surprising adventure ride, the second one is projecting serious travelogue featuring historical significance of Latin American natives and their struggle for settlement. The second half slowly transferred the tone of the film and makes it more humanitarian tale. There’s taste of true salt in his blunt but honest opinion giving character of Fuser (a young Che) acted wonderfully by Gael Garcia Marquez. The film has fine cinematography and equally brilliant background score. It may make you feel bore if you expect the typical ‘Road Film’ from it but if you watch it without any expectation, surrendering your senses to the film, it won’t disappoint you.
