Review: Midnight's Children | The Scene Magazine

There is quite a bit of magic going on in the film, and its influence on the plot and characters only increases as the narrative progresses. But whereas the novel weaves history and magic together seamlessly to form an almost mythical tale of India’s rebirth, the film simply fails to do the same – and what we get is a narrative so disjointed and incomprehensible that any sort of poignancy goes completely unnoticed. (Indie film, Midnight's Children) C-/A+
