Good cast, well-packaged; over-dramatized screenplay negates all of this
12 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

The core message is strong, the cast has given it their best shot, the packaging is excellent, but the screenplay is seriously over-dramatized and every cliche in the book on women's suffering in India has been over-used to the max.
