It focuses on a relationship between one of the widows, who wants to escape the social restrictions imposed on widows, and a man who is from the highest caste and a follower of Mahatma Gandhi.
Sins is a good candidate to become a cult movie - something along the lines of Plan Nine From Outer Space. It's so awful that it's actually hilarious. Bad acting made even worse by a dreadful script. I don't understand why the director felt the need to make the movie in English. Why not have Hindi dialogues or maybe Malayalam itself with English subtitles, since the story takes place in Kerala? The base story is not all that bad...it had the potential to be at least a mediocre movie. But somehow it has turned out to be a really terrible one. I would still recommend this to anyone who's looking for a good laugh as long as you don't expect anything more than that. Well, maybe couple of titillating scenes too.
