    "This Indian film is a Hindi comedy that has won several awards. It features a rookie military clerk who is sent to fight into combat and he hasn't the slightest idea how to fight like a soldier. While all of the combat is going on, Newton Kumar (the lead character), tries to set up a fair voting procedure in the region."

    "This japanese film is an adaptation of a Manga which explains some of the plot eccentricities and surreal feeling of the piece. The story is well told, but everything just seems a little bit larger than life and contrived. However the acting is good and the subtitles are well translated into English"
