An awesome piece of drama
25 January 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Although I missed the first 10 minutes of the movie, yet I was caught with the film till end. As per the titles, it indicates to be revolving around the emotions of a mom and the daughter, however, the movie is much more than that. We also get to see the trap one gets into and every move to resolve that complicates it further. The atrocious reality inside the adolescent centers and how miserable the life can become for the out there. The movie leaves a question if the mother has to be blamed or the daughter. Its actually the circumstances that have to be blamed and nothing more than that. Altogether it is a fine piece of drama well execute by the actors.
