28 February 2020 | by moonmoonkbSee all my reviews

Thematically this movie is very relatable n prevalent , so it would touch "human" soul for sure. It is more of an experience re experienced on screen....all the actors did Justice to their respective roles.

The movie could have been a bit faster.All the characters portrayed were extraordinarily good including the MIL which usually doesn't happen in reality when her son does wrong to her DIL. No overdramatic scenes were thrusted upon. Overall a very good movie which makes us recap n rethink about the role a woman plays in her own house,, in the society , sacrificing her SELF silently though being the BACKBONE of the family.
