The deeds we hate on other people, may be done by us, when time comes.
Humans don't always react in the most obvious ways.
At many points in life, we have to make choices, where we gain something
and we lose something. It is not usually obvious what choice is the best one.
There is an ongoing tussle between heart and brain, the intellectual
self and the emotional self, the worldly desire and larger than life desires...
These are some of things I recall from my experience with the movie. It was indeed an experience. It was a very sensitive movie having complicated characters and their psychologies. It was one of those movies wherefrom anybody could take back anything that he/she relates to, more strongly. For example, one may think it was a movie about a woman's hypocrisies whereas others might that it was a movie on fighting till the last moment. Some might view it as justifying the supernatural. Its just how you view it.
Although BASED ON A REAL LIFE STORY, and I never thought real life stories could be that surprising, its not the story that matters. Don't try to view the film based on the short story description. If you are into meaningful cinema which involves reflections from real life, a thought behind the movie, something that lets you ponder for quite sometime, this is the movie for you. And don't worry it will not be hard on you. Its softly told movie that will surely have an impact on you, positive or negative, who knows!
