Amazing movie. Has fun, drama and tragedy.
20 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would start by saying that this is an excellent movie. The movie depicts the outcome of love in the life a very poor woman. The director has done a great job by keeping the audience interested throughout the movie by depicting the life of slum through a funny story. However he has not compromised on the harsh truths. Every character in the movie has a special place and their roles look very strong in their own place. The poor have morals while the rich lose those morals for money. The movie addresses different needs of man in a hierarchical manner if one analyze carefully. while hunger takes a central stage in most of the movie, the complexities of love and poverty in a patriarchal society shape the tragic end of the movie.
