The two narratives come together and, through a series of coincidences, the lives of Meera and her employer get intertwined in strange ways.

A must see film....
22 November 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A well made film. Good story line, photography, music, cast, which culminated into a hard hitting film enlightening about the extent people can go to destroy a girl child before she is even born. Amazing team work. The film has a wonderful tempo and in the end it makes us think.Through out the film there is a wonderful father-daughter connection. It is a 'must watch' film.It should reach out to the mass promoting a stand against female foeticide. It is good to know the film is already getting accolades.Through this film a message can be given about saving a girl child. 'Lessons in Forgetting' can be promoted for a cause.It also teaches us a lesson to fight for a cause but with caution.
