It’s a case of a great idea getting ruined by the director trying to do too much with it. How about focussing a bit more on the three generations of friendships that were forged around the tea shop? Perhaps a few minutes explaining why Owner never got married and how he came to adopt a boy who works there? Why waste so much time narrating yet another village love story and the same-old gags involving fat men? In its present state, Anjala is not my cup of tea.
