Escape is hounded by an incoherent script and by scenes that drag on too long. Escape deals with the relationship of a grandson with his grandfather and his sister. Their relationships are established by scenes of daily interaction. These interactions are not coherent and viewers will be left wondering what the film is trying to say. Despite this, the film has its fair share of day to day humor.

The film appears to drag at first and one starts to become distracted but  when conversations between grandson and grandfather started  I became attentive.  The dialogues are quite  comical and the boy is inquisitive with his questions.  His dilemma of not passing stool for a month  worries him though. The boy shows attachment to his sister who goes home only rarely.  One quite comical  scene for me was when the boy ran and ran, hoping to catch up with his sister who's leaving again.  He was furious as she didn't fulfil her promise to accompany him in seeing the tiger cub but on the contrary it also solved his dilemma.  Maybe it had to do with the  running.  Acting was okay, the boy  had his  moments and over-all the film shows  typical family relationships.
