Good subject, average film
2 June 2002 | by JuguAbrahamSee all my reviews

The runner stumbles. Every one can make mistakes in life. Even then you have the options to play straight or crooked. The morality issue is well evaluated as the film progresses and that is what keeps you enthralled, not the direction, not the acting...If there is a great contribution to the film it lies in the screenplay, which is definitely interesting. It is a good family film--with an interesting look at husband and wife relationships seesawing through a stable marriage.
