An emotional tug of war
21 November 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

An engaging story that is layered with the essence of rural and urban India which keeps colliding with each other. It explores the value of closure and how it does not always end in revenge but by learning to forget and move on. The music just take the film to another level with thought provoking lyrics that tug at your heart. Lessons in forgetting is visually compelling with tastefully framed moments that will stay with you long after the movie ends. What makes this movie stand out is that it juxtaposes a modern liberated girl with the society that practices female foeticide. This constant tug of war between the characters is what culminates in a gut wrenching climax. lessons in forgetting is a must watch because it reflects the disturbing truth that exists among us and does so without being preachy. It is an honest and sincere effort that shines through.
