Storyline

Chidambaram-based Lakshmi gets married to Prithvi and re-locates to live with him in San Francisco, U.S.A.. Even though he is employed, he makes time for her and they soon become parents of a girl, Divya. Not willing to entrust her to strangers for Day Care nor baby-sitting, she undertakes to look Divya on her own, while Prithvi opens his own business and begins to neglect her. When Divya starts attending high school and befriending males, Lakshmi objects, leading to the former moving out, with Prithvi blaming his wife for these turn of events. It will not be too long before Divya finds out that her mother may be having an affair with their neighbor, Steve; while Lakshmi suspects Prithvi is involved with his employee, Pam.

after a long time we get a good indian movie to watch.
7 March 2002 | by (Cochin,India) – See all my reviews

Mitr, which is all about alienation an average woman starts feeling when her daughter and lifemate starts blaming her to be orthodox and a nag; and hardly find time to understand her. It also depicts how one forgets to live her own life for relations and a very positive ending marks states that still we can believe in relations.

It's a film which is so much refreshing for all those who got a heart to empathise and understand problems of others.

The same hands that point out the mistakes being commited doesn't go without touching the deeper core of our soul.

cinematography of the film by fowzia is unbelievably merged with the narration and fellings dealt.

Also the music score by bhavatharini needs special mention which simply complements the visualisation and moods.

If films like this are never being appreciated when can india come out of melooodramas and "got all the crap in this" type of films.

Director Revathy and her crew which consists only woman deserves cheers...(but why this gender division? for ads?)

never miss this movie.
