It is a slow pace classic family drama.....

VERY GOOD: *Performances : shabana azmi deserve to win awards.... *Dialouges : masterpiece..... *Direction : perfect... *Story : excellent family drama... *Climax..... *Side characters : really have major roles.....

AVERAGE: *Songs : they were rocking in 80's.....

VERY BAD: *Screenplay : very slow..... *No adult contents except few words....

FINAL VERDICT: It is a worth watching family drama with full of emotions......
