What are relationships about? What is love about? Does love last? Do relationships last? What happens if your wife can not conceive children? What if there is a beautiful cook in your house? What if your wife wants you to be a successful lawyer? What if you don't? What if you fall in love with the prime suspect? What if....? What? What? What? That is the question. It remains there even after watching the movie. And the movie is just heavy. The only light is the 3 beautiful actresses who look sultry in nice clothes. But that is it.
A movie might even be good if it just raises the questions above and leaves you finding the answers for yourself. But somehow it did not even manage to achieve this.
If you feel depressed and like to keep on feeling that, watch this. Otherwise, enjoy the view of natural beauties, nice cinematography and nice soundtrack.
