A young man without a purpose finds one bringing movies to the people in this comedy drama from Indian filmmaker Dev Benegal. Vishnu (Abhay Deol) is a guy in his mid-twenties who hasn't figured out what he wants to do with his life yet, though he's certain he doesn't want to follow in the footsteps of his father, who peddles hair oil for a living. Years ago, Vishnu's uncle operated a traveling movie theater, driving his truck through rural villages and setting up his makeshift cinema wherever he could find a paying audience. The uncle is donating his truck and projection equipment to a museum, and Vishnu has been drafted into taking the machine across the country to its new home. The rattletrap vehicle is a shadow of its former self, but as Vishnu rolls through the countryside it still attracts attention, and he picks up a handful of interesting hitchhikers en route, among them a young boy running away from home (Mohammed Faizal Usmani), a joyously opinionated old man (Satish Kaushik), and a beautiful woman (Tannishtha Chatterjee). And though the projectors don't run much better than the truck, Vishnu finds there are still plenty of people interested in watching the old movies he's carrying, and he unwittingly finds himself following his uncle's footsteps as a gypsy showman. ROAD, MOVIE was an official selection at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.
