Excellent screenplay and acting
3 July 2010 | by dshrm129See all my reviews

Very insightful screenplay and soulful acting. Both protagonists are very strong and compassionate females, and the movie is essentially about their bonding. It is difficult not to empathize with them. Their similarity of situations brings them together in the first place and from there on the writer does a great job of showing us how they slowly become friends on some level. She also does a very commendable job of highlighting how in India we mercilessly classify the mentally-underprivileged as "pagol". The supporting cast is spot on, and not one dialog in this movie is overdone or unnecessary. I gave it a 9 because the lives of these two women felt so overwhelmingly sad at times.
