beautiful movie ... after all its got shabana azmi, 21 June 2001
Author: ashish from edmonton, canada

Another excellent movie of shayam benegal and shabana azmi (what ever they touch is gold anyway), the story centers around the topic of treatment of women. It tries to give a message in every dialogue (which at time gets a little corny). The movie is a little heavy - not your every day fun filled song and dance, but it does strike a cord by honest portrayal of women in different roles in a household, from the grandmother to the granddaughter. comes in the "art movie" category and definatly must be seen.
