Uma review: Emotionally charged film with message of harmony is worth a watch

“I have always wanted to back and be part of good films. I feel Uma is a very important film. I think nothing is more satisfactory than a good film reaping commercial success,” said actor Anjan Dutt.

Mukherji's Uma is inspired by the rare gesture of humanity extended by a Canadian community towards Evan Leversage, a terminally ill boy. Along with spreading a message of harmony through the film, the team is taking up every possible opportunity to set an example of humanity.

Evan’s mother Nicole Wellwood flew down to Kolkata to attend the special screening of Uma this month. She was overwhelmed by the film and also spoke on the importance of turning of child’s dream into reality.
